Lindsay up to 10

The LSU coaching staff is looking into the Lone Star State for talent in 2010, and one prospect that they are going after early is offensive guard Chad Lindsay.

"My recruitment is going really, really well right now," Lindsay said. "I am up to ten total offers. Oklahoma, Texas Tech, Houston, Nebraska, LSU, Alabama, Tennessee, Georgia, Auburn and Arkansas have all offered me."


Outside of his offer list, The Woodlands standout lineman maintains interest in another state school.


"I am pretty interested in Texas, even though they haven't offered me yet," Lindsay said. "I talk to them all the time. I am pretty much interested in all of the schools that are talking with me right now, because it is still pretty early in the process."


Lindsay took in a number of college games this season, from the Red River Shootout between Texas and Oklahoma to the overtime thriller between Alabama and LSU. Yet, with schools traveling to their respective bowl games these past few weeks, Lindsay's observations of his teams of interest were restricted to television viewing.


"I watched the Texas game a couple of nights ago, which was really unbelievable," he said. "I have pretty much seen all of the games since New Year's. I also watched the Georgia Tech and LSU game, which I loved. I always like seeing LSU blow people out."


Lindsay developed that passion for the Tiger program during his time in Baton Rouge, where he lived until 2002.


"I went to Parkview Baptist, which is where [Tiger commit] Carneal [Ainsworth] goes now," he said. "I loved Baton Rouge, so I am always trying to get back down there for stuff. I make as many football games as I can, because Baton Rouge still has that feeling of home to me.


"Coach [Greg] Studrawa and coach [Larry] Porter have been staying in touch with me a lot," added Lindsay. "I actually talk to coach Porter a lot more, especially lately, since he is my recruiting coach. He just tells me that he really wants me and I am one of the top linemen on his board."


The 6-foot-3, 310-pound prospect earned those high accolades through another solid senior on the gridiron, where Lindsay held his own against some of the nation's best competition.


"I had a great season, and we finished at 9-2," he said. "I wish we could have gone a little further down into the playoffs, but we had a lot of younger guys playing.


"I got a great feel for where I am at, progression wise, when we played Lufkin," added Lindsay. "JaMarkus [McFarland] was lined up against me to start the game, and he couldn't really give us any trouble. I was not letting him make any plays, so they had to move him to the other side. I feel like my size and strength really give people problems, even the speed guys."


With Junior Days approaching for schools across the country, Lindsay hopes to make an appearance at a number of schools.


"I really want to get out to schools for Junior Day, but I have not looked at all of the dates," he said. "I know LSU has theirs coming up, so I need to go over everything and decide where I will be able to get to. But I am definitely going to be making some trips."
