Lindsey holds five offers
After spending a lot of the time on the sidelines over the last several months due to a couple injuries, Jake Lindsey is back on the court and picking up offers. The 6-foot-5, 190-pound 2015 combo guard missed much of the spring, slowing down his recruitment. "I broke my hand near the end of' my high school season and I had a stress fracture in late May so I took three weeks off and now I'm back," Lindsey said. The versatile guard prefers to play on the ball. "I'm a big point guard," Lindsey said. "I try to use my size and ball handling ability to keep my head up and make others better. One of the strengths of my game is my handle and the ability to get where I need to go on the floor. I try to make plays for myself and others. "I still need to be a more consistent perimeter jump shooter and I'm working on my foot speed as well." Baylor is Lindsey's most recent offer, joining Columbia, Tulsa, Harvard and Louisiana-Lafayette. Utah, Stanford and Utah State are amongst the schools showing interest. The son of Utah Jazz GM Dennis Lindsey, Jake isn't a Utah native which makes him a little more open to leaving home than the typical kid from the state. "I'm definitely open to leaving home," he said. "I'm not a Utah kid; I grew up in Texas. I've been in Utah since my sophomore year. "I'm looking for playing style, relationship with the coach and academics since I'm a 4.0 student." As of now, Lindsey is no rush to make a decision. "I'll wait until after July to narrow it down to who is on me the hardest and who I'm most interested in," said Lindsey. "I'll take official visits and decide in the fall."
