Elite wide receiver Tyjon Lindsey says he is still planning to announce his college decision Monday, despite the fact that he is currently without a team.

Lindsey said Thursday that he was not yet sure how he will make the announcement or at what time.

Lindsey, who had transferred from Bishop Gorman (Las Vegas) to Centennial (Corona, Calif.), has returned to Gorman, according to multiple reports, but it is unknown if he has been cleared to play.

Lindsey, ranked as the No. 6 receiver in the Class of 2017 by the 247Sports Composite, said he did not want to comment until “things are final.”

As of earlier this week, transfer paperwork had not been requested of Centennial, according to the Los Angeles Times. The Nevada Interscholastic Activities Association would need to rule on the transfer. State rules call for 10 practices before an athlete can play in a game, meaning next weekend’s opener against No. 5 Cedar Hill (Texas) seems unlikely.

Lindsey had 14 touchdown catches and 1,117 receiving yards last season at Gorman.

Lindsey announced a group of nine finalists from among his scholarship offers, but Ohio State is viewed as the leader. He would reunite with Gorman quarterback Tate Martell and defensive lineman Haskell Garrett in Columbus.
