Nebraska freshman Keyshawn Johnson Jr. cited for marijuana possession
Keyshawn Johnson Jr. came into Nebraska as a high-profile freshman. As the son of former NFL player Keyshawn Johnson and the centerpiece behind the Calibraska movement, all eyes will be on him in Lincoln.
But Johnson Jr. earned his first negative headline before he played his first snap for the Huskers.
Johnson Jr. was cited for marijuana possession and possession of drug paraphernalia on Friday, according to campus police records.
Multiple reports indicated that campus police found 4.5 grams of marijuana on Johnson inside a dorm room.
Johnson Jr. enrolled at Nebraska in January and saw action in the Huskers spring game. The Calabasas (Calif.) wideout was a three-star recruit and the No. 342 player in the 2017 class (247sports composite). He was one of several underclassman receivers vying for early playing time.
Nebraska has not commented on the incident.
