Johnson checks out Ohio State/Clemson (Scout)


Mission Viejo (Calif.) wide out Keyshawn Johnson Jr. has exploded on to the recruiting scene this spring landing national offers from some of the biggest schools in the country.

It’s tough to mention the name, Keyshawn Johnson Jr., without acknowledging his famous father, Keyshawn Johnson Sr., who was an All-American at USC and the top overall pick in the 1996 NFL Draft. The younger Johnson is making a name for himself and has blown past the double digit offer mark.

Johnson has good size for a freshman and should end up in the 6-3 to 6-4 range like his pops. He’s a smooth route runner with soft hands and just needs to continue to work on his speed and overall explosiveness.

“I’m definitely working hard on my speed, trying to get stronger and faster,” Johnson said. “I’m in the weight room every day at Mission Viejo and then running on the track afterwards to get my speed up.”

The 6'4, 212-pounder is currently ranked as the number two best player in the state of Illinois and the 192nd ranked player in the 2015 class.
