MADISON, Wisc. — Looks like Tyjon Lindsey is heading west.
Earlier this week, news broke the former 4-star wideout had asked for and been granted a scholarship release from Nebraska and would seek a transfer. Angie Machado, publisher for BeaverBlitz.com, reported Saturday afternoon Lindsey is heading to Oregon State.
It looks like that's the case.
Go to the Beavers' website, type Tyjon Lindsey's name into student search and this pops up.

Oregon State operates on a quarters system unlike Nebraska, which operates on a two-semester basis. The winter quarter begins on Jan. 7, 2019 and should Lindsey complete three quarters at the school before next football season, he would be immediately eligible to play in 2019.
After appearing in the first four games for Nebraska, Lindsey opted to transfer and preserve his redshirt for this season. The 5-foot-9, 200 pound sophomore had accounted for three catches for 22 yards this season and a total of 15 catches for 98 yards in his Husker career.
A Mike Riley recruit, Lindsey will join the former Husker head coach in Corvallis as well as former linebacker coach Trent Bray. (Riley serves as an analyst for the Beavers until the Alliance of American Football's inaugural 2019 season begins, at which point Riley will transition into a head coaching role for San Antonio.)
Lindsey is also reuniting with a pair of former 4-star Huskers as well in quarterback Tristan Gebbia and linebacker Avery Roberts.
