Michigan Football May Sign Alabama Transfer Student

Posted on Posted in Michigan Football

In the wake of the Graham Glasgow suspension that came down the other day, Brady Hoke and the Michigan Football program are looking at other options along the offensive line. One solution could come in the form of a transfer student.

According to CBS Sports’ Jeremy Fowler, the Wolverines are looking at possibly signing former Alabama offensive lineman Chad Lindsay, who left the program earlier this month.

I’m told #MIchigan is currently exploring the possibility of signing former #Alabama OG Chad Lindsay, who is transferring from the Tide.

Lindsay, who has one year of eligibility remaining, has graduated from Alabama and would be eligible to play immediately. He played in eight games, starting four at center, for the Crimson Tide last season under offensive coordinator Doug Nussmeier, so the connection to Michigan is there.

With Glasgow suspended for a portion of spring practices and the opener against Appalachian State, the Wolverines would likely be able to throw Lindsay into the mix to start that first game at center, along with redshirt junior Jack Miller and redshirt freshman Patrick Kugler.
