Nebraska starting offensive lineman Nouredin Nouili said he failed a drug test and will miss the 2022 season.

He announced his ineligibility Saturday on Twitter.

A native of Germany, Nouili was an exchange student at a high school near Lincoln, Neb. He played seven games at Colorado State in 2019, then transferred to Nebraska as a walk-on. He started the final seven games of the 2021 season at left guard and was put on scholarship in November.

The 6-foot-4, 315-pound Nouili was an academic All-Big Ten selection.
