A grad transfer with two years of eligibility remaining, Hunter Nourzad played both tackle positions for arguably the best Ivy League offensive line throughout 2019 and 2021. Since entering the transfer portal, he’s received interest from a flurry of high major teams, most notably, Penn State, Illinois, and Purdue.
I watched his cutup video for potential suitors, and while it amounted to a highlight reel and thus needs to be taken with a grain of salt, I liked what I saw. His power is his main attribute; he anchors well and is very difficult to disengage from once he gets his hands on a defender. However, I question his technique on pass sets and wonder if he might do better on the inside at a guard position.
Florida hasn’t been connected to Nouzard yet, but they would do well to make contact with his camp. His experience, versatility and skill would be a welcome addition to the Gators’ trenches, as the offensive line struggled with bouts of undisciplined play and uninterested body language all season.
