Report: Michigan Interested in OL Transfer

A report from CBS Sports' Jeremy Fowler says that Michigan is exploring the possibility of signing former Alabama offensive guard Chad Lindsay.

The Michigan football program is not known for being a transfer destination, only a place where people leave if they can't get any field action.

But, if opportunity knocks, you answer it.

CBS Sports' Jeremy Fowler tweeted Sunday that Michigan was exploring the possibility of signing former Alabama offensive guard Chad Lindsay who decided to transfer from the program a few weeks ago. Lindsay, who has already graduated, is eligible to play right away and will not require to sit out a year. However, Lindsay would be a short-term fix with only one year of eligibility left.

The potential addition of Lindsay would be a welcomed one due to the lack of veteran presence on the offensive line. It is very likely that the Wolverines will be starting four underclassmen on the line to begin the season. Michigan will also be without lineman Graham Glasgow who will be missing the season opener due to a "violation of team expectations," according to head coach Brady Hoke.

Lindsay played in eight games last season, starting in four of them at center. He also has familiarity with the Michigan offense with former Crimson Tide offensive coordinator Doug Nussmeier now coaching for the Wolverines.

Maize n Brew will have the latest on this report as it develops.
