Four-star WR Tyjon Lindsey is no longer committed to Ohio State.
The No. 6 wide receiver in the 2017 class tweeted that he is opening up his recruitment.
“I will like to announce that I have OFFICIALLY opened up my recruiting process back up,” Lindsey tweeted very late Tuesday night/early Wednesday morning.

The 5-foot-9, 161-pound Lindsey is rated No. 38 nationally and No. 1 out of Nevada (Bishop Gorman in Las Vegas) by 247 Sports’ composite rankings. Two other star teammates from Gorman, DL Haskell Garrett and QB Tate Martell, are committed to Ohio State.
Though he was selected for the U.S. Army All-American Bowl, Lindsey couldn’t play because of a knee injury. As Land of 10’s Jeremy Birmingham reported on Saturday, Lindsey had surgery on Dec. 28.
Though he was committed to Ohio State, Lindsey said schools had been in contact with him. Though he said he was “100-percent” committed to the Buckeyes, that apparently changed with the latest tweet.
“Nebraska has been contacting me still, USC, Auburn and Oregon recently with their new coaching staff,” he said. “They’ve just been talking to me, not just about football, but they know I’ve been hurt so they’re just checking on me.”
