Keyshawn Johnson Yanks Son From Nebraska Football Team After Weed Bust So He Can ‘Mature’ For Six Months

Keyshawn Johnson Jr.

Keyshawn Johnson is not playing any games with his son.

The former NFL All-Pro wide receiver went into full parent mode when he pulled his son, Keyshawn Johnson Jr., off the Nebraska football team (possibly temporarily) after the wide receiver was busted for weed in his college dorm.

Keyshawn Johnson Jr., one of the most touted wide receiver recruits in the entire nation, was cited for marijuana possession after university police found pot and drug paraphernalia in his dorm.

Keyshawn Sr., who played in the NFL for 11 years, confirmed that his son is taking an “extended leave of absence” from the football program to “mature” for 6 months.

“I never asked him,” Johnson Sr. said referencing his son.

“At the end of the day, I don’t think that decision was in his hands. He squandered that decision. He still wants to play football, and he still wants to play for Nebraska. But if you don’t do the things you’re supposed to do, under the guidelines of me, it’s not going to happen.”

“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.”

Parenting done right.
