What School Did Nix Go To?

Nix played at Auburn and Oregon. Nix originally signed with the Tigers as a four-star recruit out of high school, following in his father Patrick’s footsteps. He played at Auburn for three seasons before transferring to Oregon before the 2022 season.

When he transferred to Oregon, he had two seasons of eligibility remaining based on the NCAA-wide COVID-19 eligibility waiver for the 2020 season.

Revisiting Nix’s College Career

He threw for 12 touchdowns and seven interceptions as a sophomore in 2020.

In 2021, Nix had several ups and downs. He led Auburn to its first win at LSU since 1999 and a victory over No. 10 Ole Miss. He also struggled in several games and was benched for TJ Finley in the fourth quarter of a game against Georgia State.

Nix later suffered a season-ending injury against Mississippi State. He threw for 11 touchdowns and three interceptions in 2021.

On Dec. 12, 2021, Nix announced he was entering the transfer portal, describing himself as “miserable” while playing under Auburn head coach Bryan Harsin, who had been hired in 2021.

In his first season with Oregon, Nix lead the team to a 10-3 record. In 2023, he tied for the nation lead in passing TDs (40) and rushed for another six. Nix became the fourth Heisman Trophy Finalist in Oregon history, joining Joey Harrington (2001), LaMichael James (2010), and Marcus Mariota (2014). He finished third in Heisman voting behind Michael Penix Jr. and eventual winner Jayden Daniels.

Following his final collegiate game in the Fiesta Bowl, he broke Mac Jones‘ record for the highest single-season completion percentage at 77.45%.

Nix’s Potential in the NFL

Nix had an incredible progression through college football and has emerged as a legitimate early-round prospect in the 2024 NFL Draft.

According to Pro Football Network draft analyst Ian Cummings, Nix grades out as a late-first-round prospect in the 2024 NFL Draft who could draw mid-first-round consideration from teams that present ideal schematic fits.

“Nix reached his peak form in 2023, showing off his skills as an absurdly efficient distributor and game manager with the athleticism to create, the arm talent to keep the offense on schedule, and the accuracy to help WRs make the most of their opportunities,” Cummings wrote.

“There are still areas for Nix to improve in structure. He can be more disciplined with his footwork and his depth on drop-backs, and while he’s able to anticipate windows and throw receivers open, there’s still a level of comfort he has yet to consistently hit with tight-window throws.”
