Coaching changes can often be difficult for prospects, especially if they committed to the former coach.
Some high school prospects commit to the school, while others commit because of a coaching staff.
Lindsay admitted in an interview with BuffPlayBook.com that he was a little worried when the coaching change first occurred.
"At first it was a little frustrating," Lindsay said. "For a while we didn't know who was going to be the head coach, I was a little mad at first, along with being a little scared. I didn't know what was going to happen."
Lindsay, a 5-foot-7, 175-pound tailback who runs the forty in 4.43 seconds, was a four year starter for his high school team.
He started his first game his senior season and was sidelined with a season ending knee injury.
"I fell in love with Colorado," Lindsay said. "When I hurt my knee and then the coaching change I wasn't sure what was going to happen to me."
Lindsay explains once Coach Mike MacIntyre was hired, he sat down with the new head coach and spoke about his future.
"I made sure he knew I had surgery," Lindsay said. "He wanted to keep me, he told me he was glad to have me a part of his team, he really cared about me and wanted me to be a Buff. That will always mean a lot to me."
Lindsay has been working hard in the off-season with his rehab to make sure that he will return to full speed.
"I'm not a 100 percent yet, but I'm getting there," Lindsay said. "Everyone is behind me to be ready for fall camp, we are hoping that I will be ready, but not going to force it. I'm getting better everyday."
Lindsay started as a true freshman at South High School, rushing for 1,300 yards. He improved the next year and finished his sophomore season with 1,400 yards. His junior season was his best, gaining over 1,700 yards.
Lindsay was very impressed with the Buffs new head coach.
"I knew right off the bat he was a man with a very detailed plan for this program," Lindsay said. "I got to watch Colorado's spring game, you can already tell that they are a better team."
Lindsay will enroll in school with the rest of the class of 2013 on June 23rd.
"I love the campus," Lindsay said. "Everything is so wide open. I have always felt really comfortable there, I knew Boulder is where I wanted to be."
