    Wide receiver Tyjon Lindsey has pledged to Nebraska. The Class of 2017 product had originally been slated to go to Ohio State.


    Just a few days after he decommitted from Ohio State, four-star wide receiver Tyjon Lindsey has forged a new path to his future.

    Lindsey announced via Twitter on Saturday that he will attend Nebraska.

    The Las Vegas prospect is the No. 6 wide receiver and No. 47 overall player in the country, and he originally committed to the Buckeyes last August along with five-star wide receiver Trevon Grimes. But he changed his mind this past Tuesday night, and now he intends to go to a different Big Ten school.

    Two of Lindsey’s Bishop Gorman High School teammates, five-star quarterback Tate Martell and four-star defensive tackle Haskell Garrett, are headed to Ohio State next season. Martell has already enrolled in school. So it was quite a surprise when he changed his mind earlier in the week.

    For the Cornhuskers, it’s a big “get” for Mike Riley and his staff, who already have commitments from four-star wide receiver Keyshawn Johnson and four-star quarterback Tristan Gebbia in this cycle. Lindsey is someone who can contribute immediately, adding instant speed to the Huskers’ offensive attack in 2017. The Huskers are expected to be a more pass-oriented team than Ohio State in ’17, so that may have played a big role in Lindsey’s decision.
