You know that thin feeling at wide receiver for Nebraska. It got thinner.
Nate Clouse of HuskersOnline/Rivals is reporting that incoming freshman wideout Keyshawn Johnson Jr. will not be in Lincoln this coming Fall.
Johnson, who was a catalyst of the 2017 recruiting class with Tristan Gebbia, was cited in June this year for possession of marijuana inside his dorm room in Lincoln.
Johnson, who was having issues getting on the field this spring because of an appendectomy, played in the spring game. He had one catch for seven yards in the game in limited playing time.
Clouse did mention in his report that Johnson will be going to a junior ccollege, with the hope that he returns in January. If not, it’ll be a disappointing end to his time in Lincoln.
From this tweet from Sam McKewon of the Omaha WH, it sure sounds like this was more Dad-driven than anything.
Confirmed with Keyshawn Johnson Sr that Keyshawn Johnson Jr is taking a leave of absence from Nebraska to "mature." Hopes to return in 2018.— Samuel McKewon (@swmckewonOWH) June 21, 2017
No matter what, we wish him well.
