Keyshawn Johnson Jr. has lived in his father’s shadow for his entire life. Being football player as well, the 6-1, 195 Calabasas (Mission Viejo, Calif.) wide receiver has been compared to his father for his entire life. In a video with Bleacher Report, Johnson Jr. ended that comparison with his college commitment.
“Do I take his torch, or light my own?” Johnson asks viewers over a video footage montage of himself and his Super Bowl Champion, three-time Pro Bowl father.
“I told you I was going to make my own path. Go Big Red.”
Johnson Jr. is the third commit for Nebraska’s 2017 class. The 4-star receiving legacy joins 3-star WR Jaevon McQuitty (Battle, Columbia, Mo.) and 3-star OLB Willie Hampton (Oxbridge Academy, West Palm Beach, Fla.).
Johnson Jr. was fielding offers from dozens of Division I schools, including Ohio State, Alabama, Clemson and his father’s alma mater USC.
