Hoosiers coach Tom Allen made the announcement Monday.
The 6-foot, 300-pound graduate transfer started 26 games with the Miami Hurricanes - 22 at center including the first nine in 2016 before he suffered a season-ending shoulder injury. He will be eligible to play this fall.
Linder also started four games at left guard as a true freshman.
He did not play last season.
Linder's older brother, Brandon, is the starting center for the NFL's Jacksonville Jaguars. He is a native of Fort Lauderdale, Florida.
