Former Ohio State Linebacker Nigel Glover Returns to Northwestern

Turns out Northwestern was always the place for Nigel Glover.

After coming to Ohio State from the Wildcats via the transfer portal ahead of the 2023 football season, the linebacker is back where he signed on to play college football out of high school.

He chose Northwestern during his recruiting process but entered the transfer portal following his first spring there, ultimately selecting Ohio State as his destination on Aug. 1, 2023.

Glover didn't play a single snap in a redshirt campaign as a freshman. With Cody Simon, C.J. Hicks, Sonny Styles, Arvell Reese and Gabe Powers all likely cemented in front of him in this year's linebacker rotation, there was no clear path to the field for Glover in his potential second campaign as a Buckeye. OSU also brought in a talented group of linebackers for its 2024 recruiting class with four-stars Payton Pierce and Garrett Stover.

Glover will have four years of eligibility remaining for use at Northwestern. He is the last of Ohio State's transfer portal departures to decide on a new school, joining Dallan Hayden (Colorado), Cedrick Hawkins (UCF), Ja'Had Carter (NC State), Enokk Vimahi (Washington) and Kyion Grayes (Cal) in the spring window.
