Charlotte (N.C.) Independence running back Dominique Lindsay has yet to receive his first written offer, but two schools top Lindsay’s wish list of hopeful recruiters.
A 5-foot-11, 192-pound tailback, Lindsay rushed for 1,875 yards and 32 touchdowns for the state champion Patriots. A threat out of the backfield as well, Lindsay added another 400 yards receiving on 23 receptions.
“Tennessee and South Carolina are my two favorite schools right now,” said Lindsay. “I’m also hearing a lot from East Carolina and Virginia. All of these schools are recruiting me as a tailback.”
Lindsay attended the Nike Camp in Charlottesville back in April, but unfortunately saw his day end early when he pulled up with a hamstring pull during morning drills.
“I’m fully recovered from the injury now and I’ve had a chance to attend two other camps,” explained Lindsay. “I’ve been South Carolina and East Carolina’s camps and performed well.”
With good field vision and nice strength for a back his size, will the destination of his teammates (quarterback Joe Cox and wide receiver Mohammed Massaquoi) affect his decision at all in the end?
“I haven’t heard too much from Georgia so far, so I’d say no right now,” admitted Lindsay. “Don’t get me wrong, I’d love for them to be recruiting me pretty strong, but I just haven’t heard much at all from them yet.”
What is Lindsay looking for in a school?
“I’m looking at the depth chart at running back to see how quickly I might have the chance to get on the field,” said Lindsay. “I’d like to stay regional playing in the ACC or SEC. Beyond that, the coaching staffs and the quality of the education will be major factors as well.”
