So Keyshawn Johnson is not happy with his pot-smoking dummy son Keyshawn Johnson, Jr. His son got caught by campus police with pot and drug paraphernalia:
Keyshawn Johnson Jr. — one of the most touted wide receiver recruits in recent Nebraska football history — is taking an extended leave of absence from the Husker program in hope of returning in January, his father, Keyshawn Johnson Sr., said Tuesday night.
The younger Johnson had enrolled at NU in January, a semester early, in hope of playing in 2017. He returned home to Calabasas, California, Tuesday after what the elder Johnson called a joint decision among himself, Nebraska coach Mike Riley and the Huskers’ athletic department. Keyshawn Johnson Sr. wants his son to “mature” for six months before considering a return to the school.
“You’re in college now,” Johnson Sr. said. “You’re an adult. You’re not a kid. You take a look at it from afar and let me know how important it is to you.”
Riley confirmed via text the younger Johnson’s leave of absence.
The elder Johnson, who had an 11-year NFL career, said he’s on the same page with Riley, who used to be his offensive coordinator at USC. That relationship — forged more than two decades ago — helped Riley and Nebraska start a “Calibraska” recruiting movement in Los Angeles. Johnson Jr. — a four-star recruit in the 2017 recruiting class from Calabasas High School — was a centerpiece, but hardly the only recruit.
“One thing you will not do as my son is you will not embarrass Nebraska, you will not embarrass Mike Riley and you will not embarrass this family,” the elder Johnson said. “If you mature and you’re ready to resume your football career and academic goals, then Nebraska will be ready to embrace you.”
