Michigan may be at the top of Chad Lindsay‘s transfer to-do list, but he’s at least going to check out a couple of other campuses before making a final determination on his collegiate football future.
Jeremy Fowler of CBSSports.com tweeted Tuesday that the former Alabama offensive lineman will take visits to both Louisville and Oklahoma at some point this week. Those twin trips come on the heels of a visit to Michigan last week.
In part because Lindsay’s former offensive coordinator, Doug Nussmeier, now holds the same title in Ann Arbor, the Wolverines are viewed as the presumptive frontrunners for the player.
In mid-March, it was announced that Lindsay would be leaving the Tide and playing his final season of college ball elsewhere. The lineman will be of immediate help regardless of where he lands as he graduated from UA in August of last year, meaning he will be eligible to play immediately in 2014 at any FBS program.
In place of injured starter Ryan Kelly, Lindsay started four games at center in 2013 for Nick Saban‘s Tide. A three-star member of the Tide’s 2010 recruiting class coming out of high school in The Woodlands, Tex., Lindsay was rated as the No. 30 guard in the country that year.
