Keyshawn Johnson Jr. is still a freshman and didn’t even play varsity football last year, but he’s already picking up some big time scholarship offers.
The youngster and son of former NFL wide receiver Keyshawn Johnson attended a recent camp with his Los Angeles-based traveling 7-on-7 football team. The camp must have been well attended by college coaches, because Keyshawn Jr. has picked up five scholarship offers in the past few days. The impressive part is that the offers came from some really strong programs.
Keyshawn Jr., who played freshmen football for at powerhouse Mission Viejo High School in Calif., last season, was offered by Florida State, Arizona State, SMU, Ohio State and Utah.

Keyshawn Jr. is listed at 6-foot-1 and 185 pounds as a freshman. His dad actually moved from Calabasas to Mission Viejo to serve as an assistant coach for the varsity program last season. One of the program’s most famous alumnus is Mark Sanchez. It looks like the two had a workout together on Saturday:
