The transfer portal has just beamed a defensive tackle to "The U." 

Chigozie Nnoruka joins the Hurricanes as a graduate transfer from UCLA. He announced the news on Twitter.

Nnoruka is eligible to play in 2019 and it will be his final year of eligibility. He'll add depth and experience to Miami's defensive tackle rotation, which needs to replace 2018 seniors Gerald Willis and Tito Odenigbo. 

Nnoruka is 6-2, 287 lbs. 

And it looks like he isn't the only UCLA Bruin on his way to Miami. Teammate Jaelan Phillips recently visited the Hurricanes, and has been very outspoken on social media about his appreciation for the fans, players and coaches. 

"TNM" is the from the hashtag created by Manny Diaz, meaning "The New Miami."

Who else will the portal send to Miami?
