IU football adds TCU offensive lineman Noah Bolticoff from portal

Just over three months ago Noah Bolticoff was playing in the national championship game.  Now he’s headed to Bloomington.

The 6-foot-5 and 306 pound offensive lineman from Texas Christian announced his transfer to IU on Wednesday evening.

“Committed. Let’s get to work. Go Hoosiers,” Bolticoff said in his social media post.

Bolticoff appeared in seven games over the last two seasons including six during the 2022 campaign that saw the Horned Frogs play in the College Football Playoff.  He cracked the two-deep and saw limited reps as a reserve guard.

He got reps at both guard and tackle during TCU’s spring practice.  Bolticoff entered the portal just over a week ago.

In 2022 Bolticoff appeared in six games.  He played in the week two win over Tarleton and then in the final five contests of the season, including the College Football Playoff Semifinal and National Championship.  He earned 2022 Second Team Academic All-Big 12.

In his 2021 redshirt season he saw his lone action in the season-opening win over Duquesne.

Bolticoff should have three years of eligibility remaining.

Hailing from Rose Hill H.S. (Rose Hill, Kan.), Bolticoff was rated as the No. 1 offensive guard in Kansas and No. 33 in the country by 247Sports.  He was consensus three-star recruit, a three-sport athlete in football, basketball and track and field (shot put, discus, javelin), and chose TCU over Kansas State.
