The Indiana football program added depth to its offensive line on Wednesday with the commitment of transfer OL Noah Bolticoff.

Bolticoff is a 6-foot-5, 306-pound lineman who played two seasons at TCU. He will be a redshirt sophomore and has three years of eligibility remaining.

During the 2022 season, Bolticoff saw action in six games with TCU. He did appear in the College Football Playoff, in both the Semifinal and National Championship games.

He saw most of his action on special teams as he played in mainly a reserve and rotational role up front with the offensive line.

Bolticoff was part of the 2021 recruiting class where is was a three-star prospect. Out of Rose Hill (Ks.), Bolticoff was ranked as the No. 755 prospect in the 247Sports composite rankings. He was also listed as the No. 3 player in Kansas.

Coming out of high school, 247Sports analyst Gabe Brooks broke down what Bolticoff would bring to a power-5 program.

“Big-framed offensive line prospect with the playing experience and build that project to tackle. Possesses frame space to get to desired mass in college strength and conditioning program. Sets with good, wide base in pass pro. Shows encouraging hand placement as a pass blocker. Gets to the second level in the run game with relative ease. Quick off the ball. Can improve initial punch power at the point of attack,” Brooks wrote. “More of a catcher than a puncher at this point. Finishes blocks when opportunity arises, but will need to build overall strength, particularly in lower body, to continue development as a drive-blocker in the run game. Power 5-caliber offensive line prospect with tackle build, but potential to provide position versatility.”

The Indiana football program is looking to improve on a 4-8 record last year and a 6-18 record over the past two seasons. A large part of that will be determined with the play of the offensive line. The Hoosiers made a switch this offseason, adding Wisconsin offensive line coach Bob Bostad to staff.
