New, comments

A report from CBS Sports' Jeremy Fowler on Tuesday says that Chad Lindsay will transfer to Ohio State to spend his final year of eligibility.

Marvin Gentry-US PRESSWIRE

When it was first announced that former Alabama offensive lineman Chad Lindsay was transferring away from the school, Michigan was an attractive destination due to the familiarity he had with current offensive coordinator Doug Nussmeier.

Perhaps it wasn't so attractive after all, as it appears that Lindsay is heading elsewhere.

Ohio State to be exact.

According to CBS Sports' Jeremy Fowler's report on Tuesday, Lindsay is expected to spend his final year of eligibility with the Buckeyes.

Lindsay, who has started four games at center in his career under former offensive coordinator Doug Nussmeier at Alabama, chose to leave campus after graduation. He is eligible to play right away due to NCAA's graduate transfer rules.

Over the past few weeks, Lindsay has visited Michigan, Cal, Louisville, Oklahoma and ultimately decided that Columbus was the destination.

With Lindsay no longer an option, juniors Jack Miller and Graham Glasgow are expected to compete for the starting center position. However, Glasgow is suspended for the season opener due to punishment stemming from an incident earlier in the offseason.
