Unconfimed: Buffalo Bulls Bring in Paul Nosworthy, Grambling State Offensive Lineman

New, 4 comments

If Twitter is to be believed, then the Bulls have made some efforts to address their offensive line depth by bringing in Paul Nosworthy, who in 2015 started as a freshman for Grambling State University in Lousiana.

Nosworthy came out of Baldwin High School in Long Island, where he was a football and basketball star. After his senior season, Nosworthy was invited to play in the "Boomer Game," the All Star game played between Long Island prep players and those of New York City.

The 6-4 freshman became a starter early on in the season for Grambling and earned the respect of his coach and fellow linemen.

"Like we tell him he's not a freshman anymore. He's definitely going to be dropped in the grease in front of 60,000 against Cal. I think he's not the type of young man that gets wide eye. He relishes in the opportunity to really get out there and perform. I don't think the stage is too big for him" - Grambling Head Coach Broderick Fobbs on the eve of a game against Cal.

At 270 he is a little light to be an FBS lineman but he is athletic enough to be an interesting prospect. As a senior at Baldwin he scored 12 points on the hardwood to help lift Baldwin to a 53-45 win over Uniondale to win the Nassau Class AA boys basketball title.

As an FCS transfer, Nosworthy could play this season for Buffalo Nosworthy will likely have to sit for a season, unless he falls under some hardship waiver. The Bulls open their season at home on September second versus the Albany Great Danes.
