Purdue Football Player Countdown: #71 Nalin Fox

The freshman lineman is another promising prospect.

Michigan v Purdue

Once again, developing offensive linemen takes time, and that is what we could see with today’s player.

Nalin Fox - Fr.

Pontiac, MI (Notre Dame Prep)

6’5”, 295 pounds

Offensive Line

2020 Projection: Likely Redshirt

Fox is an interesting prospect because he played both ways in high school. His team was a good one, as they went 10-2 his senior season, advancing to the third round of the MHSAA Division 4 Playoffs. All the recruiting services had him as a 3-star recruit and Purdue was his only major conference offer. Toledo, and Central Michigan also offered him.

I expect Fox to be a project going forward. He will almost certainly redshirt this season as there are more experienced players ahead of him and it is very, very hard for true freshmen to make an impact as offensive linemen. Given time, however, he can definitely work his way into a starting role.
