Tyjon Lindsey and Trevon Grimes were a packaged deal that gave Ohio State a major recruiting boost in August.
The two top-shelf wideouts committed together in a Bleacher Report video. To this point, they were the only receivers in Ohio State’s top-ranked 2017 class.
Ohio State lost half of that wideout duo.
Early Wednesday morning, four-star receiver Tyjon Lindsey announced that he was opening up his recruitment:
I will like to announce that I have OFFICIALLY opened my recruiting process back up.

The U.S. Army All-American was high school teammates with Ohio State commits Tate Martell and Haskell Garrett. Lindsey is the No. 6 receiver and No. 38 player overall in the 2017 class.
It remains to be seen what led to Lindsey’s decision. Ohio State did just swap out its two offensive coordinators, though its uncertain if that fueled Lindsey’s de-commitment.
Lindsey was once a top target for Nebraska, and with Willie Taggart now in the picture, Oregon could make a late push for Lindsey.
With Lindsey’s announcement, Ohio State’s No. 1-spot in the 247sports class rankings went back to Alabama.
