Four-star wide receiver Tyjon Lindsey decommitted from Ohio State on Tuesday night, leaving the Buckeyes with 18 total commits in the 2017 recruiting class. 


On Tuesday, Urban Meyer’s Buckeyes picked up a huge piece of their 2017 recruiting class when they landed 5-star JUCO cornerback Kendall Sheffield. But only a few hours later, the pendulum swung the other way.

Four-star recruit Tyjon Lindsey, the No. 6 wide receiver and No. 47 overall player in the country, has decommitted from Ohio State. The Las Vegas prospect initially committed to the Buckeyes in August in a joint video with 5-star wide receiver Trevon Grimes.

Lindsey released a brief statement regarding his decision to back off his pledge to Ohio State.

“I will like to announce that I have officially opened my recruiting process back up. [sic]”

The Buckeyes currently have 18 total commits in the cycle and remain at No. 4 in the 2017 recruiting class rankings. However, they’re now 301 recruiting points behind No. 3 Michigan. Alabama still sits at No. 1 while Georgia is No. 2.

As for Lindsey, the move comes as a bit of a surprise. Two of his Bishop Gorman High School teammates, 5-star quarterback Tate Martell and 4-star defensive tackle Haskell Garrett, are set to be Buckeyes next fall. Martell has already enrolled and will wear No. 18 in Columbus.

It appears as though Nebraska is the new favorite to land Lindsey. The Cornhuskers already have commitments from 4-star wide receiver Keyshawn Johnson and 4-star quarterback Tristan Gebbia.

If Lindsey had stuck to his Ohio State pledge, he would have been competing for playing time with more than just Grimes. In the 2016 class, the Buckeyes signed 4-star wide receivers Austin Mack and Binjimen Victor. The year prior, they signed another set of 4-star pass catchers in Alex Stump and K.J. Hill.
