Nebraska football player Keyshawn Johnson Jr. found himself in trouble with the law this weekend.
According to the Omaha World-Herald, Johnson was cited for possession of drug paraphernalia and marijuana possession in a dorm hall at Nebraska.
“Head coach Mike Riley and the athletics department are aware of the incident involving Keyshawn Johnson Jr,” the university said in a statement. “We will have no additional comment until we have all information regarding this matter.”
Johnson was an early enrollee in the Cornhuskers’ 2017 recruiting class and participated in the Nebraska Spring Game.
Johnson, the son of former NFL and USC star Keyshawn Johnson, was a three-star recruit out of Calabasas. The 6-foot-1 pass catcher had offers from a number of top programs in the nation, but ultimately decided to join Mike Riley’s team. Perhaps the familiarity with his father, who played under Riley when he was an offensive coordinator at USC, helped sway Johnson’s decision.
