Oklahoma football: Alabama transfer OL Chad Lindsay chooses Ohio State over Sooners, others

NORMAN — Oklahoma lost out on Alabama transfer offensive lineman Chad Lindsay, who texted confirmation to CBSSports.com that he will sign with Ohio State.

“It’s done. Go Buckeyes!” Lindsay texted to the website’s Jeremy Fowler.

Lindsay (6-foot-2, 302 pounds) started four games last season for the Crimson Tide, but didn’t play in Alabama’s 45-31 Sugar Bowl loss to Oklahoma. Lindsay has already graduated, so he’ll be eligible to play immediately for the Buckeyes.

Lindsay, from The Woodlands, Texas, visited Ohio State, Cal, OU, Louisville and Michigan after deciding to transfer.

Out of high school, Lindsay chose Alabama over offers from OU, LSU, Tennessee, Auburn, Notre Dame and Nebraska, among others.
