Tyjon Lindsey, the 2017 Five Star Wide Receiver From Las Vegas, NV, Joins Ohio State
Only days after reports that he intended to return to Las Vegas to partner with quarterback Tate Martell, Tyjon Lindsey has joined Ohio State. The 180 pound, five foot nine, five star wide receiver went public with his decision on Monday, in a video published on his Twitter account.
Over the past few months, things have gravitated towards Ohio State, however this was not always true with regards to Lindsey's enrolment. Nebraska --- headed by Keith Williams --- spent a lot of time trying to court the country's fifth best receiver, with numerous journeys to Nevada starting as far back as the Spring.
Ohio State was not really regarded as an option for Lindsey, before Tate Martell signed up. Both prospects had shared a house in Las Vegas, once they had completed their year as freshmen at Poway, CA High School. Together, they boast over thirty-three touchdowns and two-thousand yards in helping the Gaels win two mythical National High School Championships.
Last month, Lindsey took his second journey to Columbus, OH for Friday Night Lights. In spite of travel issues, he informed news outlets that he enjoyed his trip, which featured some welcomed face time with Urban Meyer, the head coach, and Zach Smith - the wide receivers coach.
Following a short stint at Poway Centennial High, where he intended to complete high school nearer to his close family, Lindsey went back to Las Vegas last week, once he discovered that he would have to forgo the initial five matches of the senior season - because of rules imposed by the CA Interscholastic Federation.
Some believed that Lindsey might subsequently put off his announcement, however America's number twenty-four overall prospect opted instead to be the first 2017 class receiver to join the Buckeyes.
