Report: ex-Tide lineman expected to join Buckeyes

It appears that, the way it have on the field the past decade, Ohio State is going to get over on bitter rival Michigan on the transfer front as well.

Jeremy Fowler of CBSSports.com tweeted Tuesday afternoon that offensive lineman Chad Lindsay has decided to transfer to Ohio State and continue his playing career with the Buckeyes.  OSU, obviously, has yet to officially confirm Lindsay’s addition to the roster, although that could happen by week’s end.

In mid-March, it was announced that Lindsay would be leaving the Tide and playing his final season of college ball elsewhere.  As Lindsay will be a graduate transfer, he will be eligible to play immediately in 2014.

Michigan was reportedly the favorite to land Lindsay from the get-go — UA’s offensive coordinator a year ago, Doug Nussmeier, left for the same job with the Wolverines — although both Louisville and Oklahoma were a part of the transfer discussion as well.

Lindsay’s addition would give the Buckeyes an experienced option in the middle of a revamped offensive line that will see four new starters in 2014. 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.

    He’s dreaming of B1G titles……and of getting bailed out of jail multiple times.

    Where does it say anything about jail? I’m lost.

    Derek has an inferiority complex from being a scUM fan who has repeatedly seen his team get pounded by OSU.
    It’s going to continue next season.

    man, some of you OSU haters need fresh material. Your feeble attempts to insult OSU are stale.

    Coming from Alabumpkin’, theres no way he could handle the academics at Michigan. Blohio State is a $ECheat type school when it comes to its football program. The tattoo scandal was krap and was a non issue. OSU isn’t the same caliber as Michigan when it comes to academics. At least Blohio state has other strong programs such as basketball. They’re head and shoulders above Alabumpkin’ when it comes to academics. Urban will make sure he stays academically eligible, just like they do in the $ECheat!
