Today we feature a player that got to campus just last year, so he is still developing up front.
Nalin Fox - Fr. (RS)
Pontiac, MI (Notre Dame Prep)
6’5”, 295 pounds
2021 Projection: Reserve
Fox is likely deep not he depth chart because of the experience Purdue has returning up front, but that can be a good thing. He can continue to develop and wait for his time in 2022 or beyond. He came to Purdue as a three-star recruit and an offensive tackle.
One thing to look for in Fox is leadership, as he is part of a fraternity that I am in myself: He is an Eagle Scout.
Congratulations to our latest Eagle Scout! Nalin Fox @nalinfox is the 18th from Notre Dame in recent years to receive rare honor: https://t.co/eZNp2PNjna @boyscouts #ScoutsBSA #MissionDrivenLeader pic.twitter.com/t3c6exDWWV— NDPMA (@NDPMA) June 7, 2019
This tells me he is willing to put in a lot of hard work and take on extra projects that are not necessarily required. As part of the Eagle Class of 1997 I welcome him to the crew.
