Coach Scott Frost said in a statement that Nouili will participate in practice this fall and that “we look forward to him resuming his playing career in 2023.”
“He is an outstanding young man, who made a mistake that will force him to miss the 2022 season and forfeit a year of eligibility,” Frost said.
Nouili, 6-foot-4 and 315 pounds, played in every game in 2021. The native of Germany started the last seven games at left tackle.
