Were it not for his twin brother, Dusty Lindsey, Jordin would probably have garnered more attention than he has. Competing for Mobile's Davidson High School, Jordin Lindsey posted 147 tackles, six sacks, and four fumble recoveries as a junior and frankly deserved All-State recognition.
Lindsey (6-3 ½, 225, 4.65) reads the play quickly and he fills the hole with a vengeance. His football speed is faster than his forty time, because anticipation allows him to read the He's also very good at recognizing the other team's offensive tendencies.
Jordin plays with an intense nature that is imperative for a successful middle linebacker. According to his high school coach, he has confidence in his ability to succeed on the field and off. His coach lists leadership, intelligence, and aggressiveness as key character traits.
Jordin's and Dusty's grandfather, Vernon Lindsey played in the NFL for the Philadelphia Eagles in the 1970's.
Jordin is also a standout on the baseball diamond. He batted .486 with seven home runs as a junior.
In the weight room he bench presses 335 pounds, squats 415, power cleans 265, and dead-lifts 480. He carries a 2.7 GPA and has scored 18 on the ACT.
Both Jordin's parents are Alabama fans but Auburn and LSU have gotten an early jump. The previous staff showed no interest, never sending any letters.
Coach Price and his staff recently made their first contact, and with the family ties to Alabama, the Tide should be able to catch up quickly.
Both brothers want to attend school and play college football together.
