You should Google if 57 is a prime number then come back. Don’t worry, I’ll wait. Did you do it? Google said ‘no,’ huh? I’m skeptical. Anyway we have 57 days till kickoff and with that, we have a big dude to review. —OL Nathan Cardona

#57, Nathan Cardona, RS Freshman, OL


Height: 6’ 3”

Weight: 270 lbs.

High School: Yorba Linda HS, Yorba Linda, CA

How’d he get to the Blue™?

By way of Yorba Linda and the Crestview League. He was a three-star prospect per ESPN and 247Sports. He had some other offers, especially from the rest of the Mountain West from 10 out of the 12 teams. Army and Illinois rounding out some of the other offers. Like every other guy on this list: made the right decision.



I’ve been watching a lot of Italian cooking videos on Facebook recently.


Maybe a slightly less bearded Dan Fogler?

Career Highlights

Nothing in the blue and orange yet. But while at Yorba Linda he was 2019 Crestview League Lineman of the Year. He helped lead Yorba Linda to a Crestview League title in 2019.

2021 Prospectus

The offensive line does have a ton of options as far as experience and bodies are concerned. Seeing him get on the field will definitely be a plus. He’s got a lot of room to grow (figuratively and literally) so expectations should be high. As it stands, special teams may be his niche for now.

Is he on Twitter?

Completely made up fact

The Gruen Transfer is the intentional disorienting of customers in a mall so they spend more time in the mall and thus spend more money. But Nathan Cardona does not fall for such shenanigans, especially when all pretzels are involved. They are his North Star.
