Ohio State didn't finish "The Chase" last season. So the title hunt is still on, but with a much different team that's inexperienced but loaded with speed, writes Brian Bennett. Story
Lindsay, who started four games for the Crimson Tide last season, will be eligible to play immediately because he graduated from Alabama. Ohio State, which lost four starting offensive linemen from the 2013 season, likely will use Lindsay at center this fall.
CBSsports.com first reported Lindsay's move to Ohio State. Lindsay told the website in a text message, "It's done. Go Buckeyes!"
Lindsay, a native of The Woodlands, Texas, also considered Michigan, Louisville, Cal and Oklahoma. He played as a reserve for Alabama in 2011 and 2012 before moving into the starting lineup midway through last season.
