From the Natural State to the Sunshine State.

That's the move TJ Lindsey will soon be making, as the highly-touted football player from Bryant (Arkansas) revealed he will transfer to national powerhouse IMG Academy (Florida) for his senior year in 2023-24.

The No. 6 prospect in Arkansas for the class of 2024, according to the 247Sports composite rankings, Lindsey is a top-50 defensive lineman in the nation. Auburn, Texas and Texas A&M are among the contenders for the three-star recruit. 

Lindsey has been visiting schools all around the country in recent months, hitting LSU, Texas A&M, Notre Dame, Oregon, Miami and more, with upcoming official visits scheduled to Auburn and Texas.

The 6-foot-5, 270-pound junior helped Bryant (12-0) to an undefeated season and fifth-straight state title in 2022. The Hornets, who have won 53 games in a row, went wire-to-wire as the top team in the SBLive Arkansas Power 25 rankings.

Lindsey's new team, IMG Academy, finished the 2022 season at No. 5 in the SBLive/Sports Illustrated Power 25 national rankings, with the Ascenders' (8-1) only loss coming to Miami Central in their season opener.
