|Description||Keyshawn Johnson Jr. taking leave from Nebraska Huskers
The start of highly touted WR Keyshawn Johnson Jr.'s college football career is on hold. Johnson Jr. will take a leave of absence from Nebraska with the hope of returning in January,[url=http://bit.ly/2qOj1aR]Authentic Jonathan Allen Jersey[/url], according to his father, former NFL star Keyshawn Johnson Sr.
according to a university police report.,The Huskers freshman received a citation for marijuana possession and possession of drug paraphernalia earlier this month after police found 4.5 grams of marijuana in Johnson's dorm room
" Johnson Sr. said,"You're in college now, you will not embarrass (coach) Mike Riley and you will not embarrass this family. If you mature and you're ready to resume your football career and academic goals, per the Omaha World-Herald. "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. ... One thing you will not do as my son is you will not embarrass Nebraska, then Nebraska will be ready to embrace you."
Cornhuskers coach Mike Riley,Johnson Sr. said the decision was a mutual one between himself, however,[url=http://bit.ly/2stSvoD]Montae Nicholson Jersey[/url], and the Nebraska athletic department. Johnson Jr.,[url=http://bit.ly/2qRoMIQ]Authentic Fabian Moreau Jersey[/url], was not involved in the decision.
"I never asked him. At the end of the day,[url=http://bit.ly/2qRfEEo]Authentic Ryan Anderson Jersey[/url], I don't think that decision was in his hands. He squandered that decision," Johnson Sr. said.
Johnson Jr. was a four-star recruit from Calabasas (Calif.) High School. He chose Nebraska over USC, Alabama, Clemson and Ohio State when he committed to the Cornhuskers in March of 2016, and participated, in part due to the strong relationship between his father and Riley. He joined the Cornhuskers program when he enrolled in January, on a limited basis due to illness, in Nebraska's spring practice. Riley was USC's offensive coordinator when Johnson starred for the Trojans in 1994 and 1995.
"There's no 'Mike Riley is good friends with Keyshawn,[url=http://bit.ly/2stSvoD]Authentic Montae Nicholson Jersey[/url],[url=http://bit.ly/2rrk973]Authentic Samaje Perine Jersey[/url], so his son's automatically going to play.' That's not the game. That's not why he went to Nebraska,[url=http://bit.ly/2rrk973]Samaje Perine Jersey[/url],[url=http://bit.ly/2qRoMIQ]Fabian Moreau Jersey[/url],[url=http://bit.ly/2qRfEEo]Ryan Anderson Jersey[/url],[url=http://bit.ly/2qOj1aR]Jonathan Allen Jersey[/url]," Johnson Sr. said. "He went there to work his tail off. To have an opportunity to be successful. But when you don't do that -- and you squander that -- what are you going to do?"
