After Ohio State basketball has seen recent success landing the likes of Anthony Lee and Trevor Thompson, Urban Meyer and the Ohio State football program have reportedly gotten in on the transfer action. According to Jeremy Fowler of (who has a long standing relationship with Meyer), former University of Alabama center Chad Lindsay is expected to transfer to Ohio State. Lindsay was also considering California, Louisville, Oklahoma, and deliciously, Michigan.

Lindsay, a graduate transfer, will be eligible to play immediately. The 6'2, 302-pound center hails originally from Texas and was a part of the 2010 recruiting class for Nick Saban and Bama. The Buckeyes offensive line is in the process of replacing four starters and can certainly use all the added depth and experience it can possibly get.

Lindsay started four games for the Crimson Tide last year and ostensibly immediately jumps to the forefront of a competition that had been expected to go to sophomore Jacoby Boren. Redshirt freshman Billy Price had also seen repetitions with the ones during spring football practices.
