The revelation by UNLV transfer offensive lineman Justice Oluwaseun that he received an offer from the Miami football program would help the Hurricanes’ depth. Barry Jackson of the Miami Herald reported that Oluwaseun has two seasons of college eligibility remaining. Oluwaseun redshirted with the Rebels in 2017.

The second season of eligibility remaining for Oluwaseun comes from the extra year all players received in 2020. Oluwaseun has received offers from Florida International, Houston, Liberty, North Texas, Rutgers, Virginia Tech and Western Kentucky. Oluwaseun received a transfer grade of 84 from 247 Sports.

Oluwaseun is ranked as the ninth-best transfer still available in the portal. Miami would have to count Oluwasun towards the 2022 recruiting class as the Hurricanes have already reached the limit of 25 players for 2022. Miami returns everyone on its OL for the 2021 season. That includes 169 career starts by returning players.

Oluwaseun has a connection to Miami playing for Hurricanes offensive line coach Garin Justice for two years at UNLV. Justice was the Rebels offensive line coach in 2018-19 and their offensive coordinator in 2019. Olawaseun started 12 games at right tackle for UNLV the last three seasons, five at left tackle and one at left guard.


"9.) JUSTICE OLUWASEUN, UNLV OLRating: 84.Position: No. 6 offensive lineman.Entered: Jan. 20.Justice Oluwaseun proved to be a versatile offensive lineman for UNLV, playing every position but right guard during his tenure from 2017-20. A fourth-year junior for the 2020 season, Oluwaseun was a participant in all six games as the Rebels went 0-6.He split his third-year-sophomore season in 2019 as UNLV’s starting right and left tackle with five games apiece, while also making one start at left guard. The 6-foot-3, 325-pounder missed one game due to an injury.He got his feet wet as a redshirt freshman in the 2018 season, making eight appearances and starting UNLV’s final four contests. Oluwaseun chose the Rebels as a high-school recruit out of Richmond (Texas) Foster in 2017."

The above is the profile of Oluwaseun as part of the “10 best available CFB players in NCAA transfer portal.” At 6’3, 325 pounds, Oluwaseun would tie for the third biggest player on the Miami football roster. Navaughn Donaldson and Jalen Rivers are bigger and Cleveland Reed is the same size as Oluwaseun.

Next. Miami football has thrived with transfer defensive linemen. dark

With experience starting at UNLV at three of the five positions on the OL, Oluwaseun would be a huge asset for the depth on the OL for Miami. A flaw in recent seasons, the Hurricanes OL should be a strength in 2021. Few teams in college football in 2021 will have as much experience as Miami on the OL.
