"I'm still looking mostly at Pitt, Ohio State, Boston College, West Virginia, Connecticut and Temple. All of them have offered me a scholarship," he stated.
Lindsay has an outstanding junior year. On offense, he rushed for 1,234 yards and scored 19 touchdowns as a junior. He registered 92 tackles, 11 sacks and 3 forced fumbles.
"I was able to talk to Coach (Dave) Wannstedt, Coach (Curtis) Bray and Coach (David) Walker when I was down there. Pitt told me I can play either offense or defense. I spoke with Coach Bray about their situation with their linebackers. They lose a lot of people after the season. Coach Walker and I talked about how he would use me on offense."
Aliquippa High School is a relatively small school known for producing a myriad of outstanding football players. The pipeline between the University of Pittsburgh and "The Quips" has been well documented. A pair of former Quips, cornerback Darrelle Revis and linebacker Tommie Campbell, have locked down starting positions on the Panthers' defense.
"Playing time is important to me. It looks like I have an opportunity gain a lot of playing time at linebacker for the Panthers. They really aren't that deep at running back either."
Lindsay earned first team All-Conference on offense and defense as a junior. He was named honorable mention All-State as well. Brandon is capable of running a 4.6 forty-yard dash. He plays running back; linebacker and nose tackle for the Quips.
"A lot of people know what I can do on defense, but I'm good running back as well. I like to compare myself to Eddie Geroge. Like him I have size but I'm also pretty quick and nimble."
When asked if he was close to a final decision, Lindsey stated, "Not right now. I'm not close to a final decision. I have the Panthers in my top four or five. It looks like I'll visit Pitt, Ohio State and West Virginia. Those three for sure."
"I like Pitt a lot. I have friends on their roster, I like the coaching staff and they are my hometown team."
