U of L hosts Alabama OL transfer

Chad Lindsay, who is transferring from Alabama and has one year of eligibility remaining, was on the University of Louisville's campus on Tuesday. Lindsay visited U of L's practice and spent time with the U of L coaches after practice.

If the The University of Louisville football team has one glaring weakness heading out of spring football it's depth at offensive line.

But the U of L staff is busy trying to shore up the holes on the offensive line. The Cardinals are bringing in some help in the fall and are looking for more players.

On Tuesday, the Cardinals hosted Alabama transfer lineman Chad Lindsay. The 6-foot-2, 302-pound Lindsay has already graduated from Alabama and would be eligible immediately to play for the school he chooses for one season.

Lindsay, who is originally from The Woodlands, Texas, started four games last season for Alabama. He came off the bench in 10 games in Alabama's 2012-13 national championship season.

Lindsay visited Michigan last weekend and is expected to make a trip to Okalahoma this weekend. He spent time watching practice on Tuesday, looking around the facilities and then went to dinner with the coaching staff.

U of L returns three starters on the offensive line but Jake Smith has been moved from center to the guard position. Walk-on Tobijah Hughley of Lexington is now listed as the first-team center.
