We are just a few days into fall camp for the #Nebraska football team but there are already a couple of players turning heads. Tanner Lee is continuing his nice little run this summer by impressing people early with his ability to make all the throws. One of the receivers who has managed to stand out, when it comes to catching those throws is #Freshman Tyjon Lindsey. When looking at the receiving corps for the Huskers this fall, there is going to be room for at least one freshman to push for playing time. With Keyshawn Johnson Jr no longer with the program at the present moment, the door is certainly open for Lindsey to walk through.

From top recruit to star receiver for the Nebraska football team?

Those who follow recruiting closely know the Nebraska football coaches have known for a while Tyjon Lindsey is someone special.

The receiver originally committed to Ohio State but later opened his recruiting back up. The Huskers took advantage of the unsurety in the Buckeyes Lindsey felt to double down in their efforts to land him. In the end, the Huskers did indeed land the wide receiver. If his performances in early practices is any indication, he's living up to all the hype that surrounded him coming out of high school.

The Land of 10 reports Lindsey has been able to take advantage of the early absence of De'Mornay Pierson-El as well. The receiver and punt returner did not sit out the first practice due to injury, but rather because he was at his sister's wedding. This absence was sanctioned by the coaching staff but it did allow other members of the roster another opportunity to show what they can do. Lindsey was reportedly playing more on the outside than the slot and managed to shake a couple of linebackers on one particular pattern that was enough to anger the defensive coaches.

Lindsey also apparently had several nice catches in traffic.

Nebraska football backs and receivers looking sharp

It appears for the moment, the offense is ahead of the defense. That's to be expected as camp first kicks off. Bob Diaco has his work cut out for him in continuing to implement the 3-4 defense. Receivers like Bryan Reimers and Keyan Williams have been looking good as well. On the running back front, it appears that Mikale Wilbon has bought in all the way and is looking to win the starting job this year. Mike Riley also mentioned that freshman Jaylin Bradley has been getting the notice of the Nebraska football coaches early on. #Football Team
