Texas high schooler Chad Lindberg makes it official: he is committed to playing football for the University of Georgia.
The Clear Creek product announced his intentions this summer, and has been rock-solid for Athens ever since. He never waivered even after receiving offers from LSU, Texas, A&M, and USC West. The four-star offensive lineman has consistently been ranked in the top 150 nationally, regardless of position. Even with the departure of Sam Pittman, Lindberg seems to really like being a student-athlete in red and black:
“If I was not a football player that is the type of school I can see myself at.”
With the injuries and shuffling on the line during the 2019 season, and with Thomas and Wilson now officially declaring for the NFL, there will be ample opportunity for Lindberg. From his tape, he reminds me of Cade Mays... the dude plays angry. He finishes blocks almost on principle, he has no problem going into the 2nd level and taking on a second rusher. and at 6’6” and 327 lbs, has an ideal tackle frame.
Coach Luke can’t complain about the cupboard inventory nor it’s restocking. And from a season where pass protection appeared near flawless, but inside zone and short-yardage seemed puzzling, the pieces are there to remain a preeminent NFL linemen factory. #OLU, y’all.
