Cornhuskers' Keyshawn Johnson Jr. cited for marijuana possession

Nebraska freshman wide receiver Keyshawn Johnson Jr. was cited for marijuana possession and possession of drug paraphernalia on Friday, according to campus police records.

Johnson, a recruit who enrolled in January and played for the Huskers in the spring game, is the son of former NFL receiver and current ESPN analyst Keyshawn Johnson, who played for Nebraska coach Mike Riley at Southern California in the 1990s.

According to a university police report, officers responding to a call to Selleck Hall on Friday found 4.5 grams of marijuana and drug paraphernalia in Johnson's room. Johnson was ticketed and released for possession of marijuana less than one ounce and possession of drug paraphernalia.

Johnson, 18, was the 159th-ranked recruit in the Class of 2017.

A Nebraska athletic department statement said Riley was aware of the situation and would have no immediate comment.
