Four-star Wide Receiver Tyjon Lindsey Decommits from Ohio State

Four-star wide receiver Tyjon Lindsey has reopened his recruitment.

Ohio State's 2017 recruiting class suffered a bit of a blow late Tuesday night when four-star wide receiver Tyjon Lindsey announced that he was reopening his recruitment.

The Bishop Gorman standout has been a part of Ohio State's class since he announced his pledge on Aug. 22, the same day as five-star wide receiver Trevon Grimes. At 5-foot-9 and 160 pounds, Lindsey is undersized but when healthy was seen as one of the country's top playmakers. 

He suffered a shoulder injury early on in his senior campaign and then was ruled out for the season after suffering a knee injury in October. He was elected to the U.S. Army All-American Bowl but did not participate last weekend due to the injury. 

With Lindsey's decommitment, the aforementioned Grimes is now the lone receiver commit in the Buckeyes' class. The staff is still targeting Cleveland's Jaylen Harris but may very well elect to make a run at some other wideouts over the coming weeks. 

The four-star chose Ohio State over offers from Nebraska, Texas A&M, Auburn, and others. With a month until signing day, it appears that the Huskers may be poised to land the one-time Buckeye pledge. 

Lindsey's decommitment moves Ohio State to No. 2 in the national recruiting rankings just hours after claiming the top spot from Alabama following Kendall Sheffield's commitment.
