Five quick takes on Tyjon Lindsey's commitment to Nebraska

New Husker commit Tyjon Lindsey, right, is close friends with Keyshawn Johnson Jr., right, who has already enrolled at Nebraska.

Four-star wide receiver Tyjon Lindsey announced on Saturday that he was committing to Nebraska, days after he dropped his commitment to Ohio State. World-Herald staff writer Sam McKewon has five quick thoughts on what landing Lindsey means for the Huskers:

1. Lindsey is instant offense, a guy who can contribute immediately to Nebraska's attack. Lindsey isn't just recruiting momentum — he's a bona fide contributor from day one. He'll immediately become one of NU's fastest and quickest guys on the roster, and should be able to stretch defenses.

2. Nebraska is a better fit for Lindsey than Ohio State. NU's vibe is the right kind for a family-first guy like Lindsey, and the Huskers recruited to Lindsey's strengths well all along. Not only is Lindsey more of a featured player at Nebraska, he's a guy who fits with this class of character-first California kids.

3. Big win for Keith Williams — with a slight assist from Donte Williams. The latter had a visit with Lindsey this week, according to recruiting reports, and Keith Williams had built the relationship throughout. He's on the board against Ohio State wide receivers coach Zach Smith.

4. This may open the door to more California love. Will Joseph Lewis and Greg Johnson be paying attention? You bet. Three high-end California commits — two of which are already enrolled — is a movement.

5. Now, make some hay on defense. Nebraska has a pretty good class on defense, but a couple defensive back commits, and one more defensive line prospect, and it'll be even better.
