Keyshawn Johnson Jr. commits to Nebraska


Class of 2017 four-star wide receiver Keyshawn Johnson Jr. has committed to Nebraska, according to a Bleacher Report video starring the young prospect.

Johnson, who currently attends Calabasas High School in the Los Angeles area, picked Nebraska over a number of programs including Alabama, Miami, Arizona, Ohio State and his father’s alma mater USC, among many others.

Instead, he will head to Nebraska to play for Mike Riley and, as he put it, “blaze his own trail,” and will surely be an immediate impact player in 2017. Oddly enough, it was Riley who was Keyshawn Johnson Sr.’s offensive coordinator at USC. Given how Johnson went on to be the first overall pick in the 1996 NFL Draft, Riley clearly has a knack for developing young receivers.

And the Keyshawn Johnson Jr.’s arrival in Lincoln won’t be a moment too soon. Though the Cornhuskers beat UCLA in the Foster Farms Bowl last season, they still finished 6-7 (3-5 Big Ten) and looked lost for most of 2015.

Thus, given how Nebraska hasn’t had a 1,000 yard receiver in over 15 years, here’s hoping that Keyshawn Johnson Jr. can help break that trend.
