Cornell OL Transfer Hunter Nourzad Picks Penn State

Penn State just keeps beefing up its offensive line.

Last Wednesday, the Nittany Lions got a signing day surprise when Washington native Vega Ioane chose Penn State over the University of Washington.

Three days later, Jven Williams, a four-star recruit from Wyomissing High School in Reading, Pennsylvania— who happens to be the top-ranked player in Pennsylvania from the 2023 recruiting class— announced his commitment to Penn State.

Today, the Nittany Lions’ immediate future up front got a little brighter.

Hunter Nourzad, a 6-foot-4, 298-ponder who spent the last four autumn’s at Cornell, announced that he’ll be transferring to Penn State for the 2022 season. Nourzad had been in the transfer portal since late November.

After not getting any playing time as a freshman, Nourzad became a full-time starter in 2019 and earned second-team All-Ivy League honors. Nourzad didn’t get a chance to build on that success in 2020 due to the Ivy League cancelling its season, but came back in 2021 to earn first-team all-conference. Nourzad also earned All-America accolades from both the AFCA (second-team) and Phil Steele (third-team). Steele also named Nourzad his Ivy League Offensive Lineman of the Year.

This is just more good news for Penn State as its offensive line continues to add muscle and talent, trying to atone for a disappointing 2021 season up-front.
