Land of 10 has embarked on a series of “Next Generation” stories, a project that aims to bring readers insight into the class of 2017 signees. The series will officially debut in March. On Saturday, Nebraska reporter Chris Heady spent time with 4-star wide receiver Tyjon Lindsey.
LAS VEGAS — Let it be known that Nebraska commit Tyjon Lindsey used to own this tournament.
“He was always putting on a show,” said Elijah Blades, a future teammate of Lindsey’s at Nebraska. “Scoring and doin’ flips and all that.”
The two, along with Washington State commit Jamire Calvin and a few other friends, are out in Vegas this weekend for a 7-on-7 tournament. Blades and Calvin came from California to meet up with Lindsey, relive some glory days and catch up with each other since National Signing day about a month ago.
While out doing a story on Lindsey for the Next Generation series, Land of 10 caught up with all three and asked about Nebraska, and what each of them have been up to since signing day.
All say they are doing well.
Lindsey, a 4-star wide receiver commit from Las Vegas, is recovering from a torn meniscus and working out full-speed now.
Blades, a 4-star corner from Pasadena, Calif., is taking it easy since signing day and loving the love Nebraska fans are showing him on social media. Calvin, who de-committed from Nebraska on signing day, said he’s growing more and more comfortable with his decision to attend Washington State.
Here’s our short conversation below:
We’ll have more in the next week or so for our Next Generation series on Lindsey. The story will be about Lindsey’s life, why he decommitted from Ohio State, why he chose Nebraska, and his journey from California to Lincoln.
