Tyjon Lindsey knows how to make an impression.
The 2017 prospect transferred from Poway, Calif., to Las Vegas (Nev.) Bishop Gorman for his sophomore season and in the opener this past weekend against Anaheim (Calif.) Servite Lindsey caught two touchdown passes and also returned a punt 92 yards for another score.
It was a huge first impression made by Lindsey, who said the move to Gorman has been great and he's excited for more things to happen.

"It was pretty good," Lindsey said. "I was happy with the way we played.
"It wasn't really expected. At Gorman you always expect the unexpected so we had to do what we had to do and put on for the family that was all out here. We just had to ball out."
Lindsey, a 5-foot-8, 165-pound wide receiver who also thrives on special teams, said there was an adjustment period for him and Washington commit Tate Martell, another former Poway recruit who ended up at Gorman.
"It was a little tough at first trying to get used to a new football team and everything," Lindsey said. "Through adversity we have to get through everything, through all the obstacles and learn to get closer as a family with each other. It was a great move and a very smart move for me."
Lindsey has attended a lot of summer camps and is receiving some solid interest although no offers have come through yet. Washington, Oregon, Stanford, UCLA, USC and Arizona State have reached out but the 2017 standout is still waiting for his first offer.
That his friend and teammate, Martell, is committed to Washington might play a factor in Lindsey's recruitment but he wants to remain open to all programs.
'It's a little early but we went to a lot of college camps so we've gotten some exposure here and there," Lindsey said.
"We have to ride through it. He's like a brother to me and I like to watch him succeed."
