Huskers offer junior lineman

Last year, the Huskers made a point to hit Texas as much as possible when it came to recruiting. Nebraska came away with nine commitments from the 2008 class from the Lone Star State. Brandon Thompson, a lineman from The Woodlands, comes from a school known for producing talented, division one players. The Huskers have already offered one from the class of 2010.

Last year, Nebraska dipped into The Woodlands (Texas) and received a commitment from offensive lineman, Brandon Thompson. The Huskers are eyeing another from The Woodlands for the class of 2010.

Chad Lindsay already has a very nice list of offers. A 6-foot-4 and 300-pound offensive lineman has 5.3-speed in the 40-yard dash and is currently leading his team to a perfect record.

"We are 5-0 and ranked #6 in the state," Lindsay said. "I am playing guard. So far, my season is going really, really well. I haven't allowed a sack all season. I have quite a few knock downs. I am averaging probably six or seven a game."

Lindsay pulled in some amazing honors last year as a sophomore and received a prestigious, pre-season honor this year already. "As a sophomore, I was first team all-district, first team all-region II and before the season started I was pre-season all-state as well."

Lindsay is being looked at to play interior line at the next level; however it doesn't matter to him where he plays. "Most of the coaches I have talked to like me to play guard. It doesn't matter to me where they want to play me because I just want to play."

"I would say my quickness and my physical strength are my best areas. I like to do it all. I like pass blocking, run blocking, pulling and all of it. I get up for all of them."

There is already a pretty impressive list of offers for Lindsay so early in the process. He is looking for academics, good coaches and a program that has good football tradition.

"I have seven offers so far. I have offers from LSU, Alabama, Auburn, Georgia, Nebraska, Texas Tech and Houston. I am looking for good academics. I want to have a career in business. Of course there are the coaches and the tradition that will play a big part."

This summer was a busy one for Lindsay who went to a camp that was close by and then took a tour of SEC country. He has also been on a couple of visits so far this fall.

"In the summer, I went to the Texas camp. I also took a trip to LSU, Alabama, Georgia, Auburn and Tennessee. I went to the Texas-Oklahoma game and the Tennessee-Kentucky game recently."

Despite having seven offers from some very good programs there isn't a list of favorites for Lindsay beyond just saying that all of the schools that have offered are his favorites.

"I don't really have any favorites or a list right now. If I had to say, I would say that it was the seven schools that have offered me as of right now."

Last year, Nebraska received a commitment from Brandon Thompson who played offensive line for The Woodlands. Lindsay is familiar with Thompson, but said that they didn't talk a lot about recruiting of Nebraska last year or since Thompson left for Lincoln.

"I haven't gotten a chance to talk to Brandon since he went to Nebraska. Brandon is a pretty quiet guy and we didn't really talk about recruiting or anything."

While Thompson and Lindsay haven't spoken yet about Nebraska it doesn't faze Lindsay and his desire to see Nebraska. He is familiar with the sell-out streak that Nebraska has and would like to experience it for himself.

"Oh yeah, absolutely. I want to go and see them. I want to see their sell out crowds that everyone talks about. They have the longest sell-out streak. Everyone knows that and people say it's amazing to witness.

"I would love to get up there this fall, but I am just so busy through the season. I am still going to try and get up there to see a game."
