Scout 300 WR Keyshawn Johnson Cuts His List To Five

Calabasas (Calif.) junior wide out Keyshawn Johnson cut his list to five on Sunday and a decision could come sooner than later.

After sorting through scholarship offers from schools all over the country, talented 2017 receiver Keyshawn Johnson cut his list down to five. 

Johnson tweeted out an alphabetical top five of Alabama, Clemson, Nebraska, Ohio State and USC and gave us his thoughts on each program.

Alabama- "When I went to Alabama it was the loudest stadium I've ever been to. The coaching staff is top notch and they get people out (to the NFL). Lane Kiffin has been recruiting me hard since I was a freshmen so Bama will always be high on my list."

Clemson- "Clemson is a place that feels like home. I love the feeling get when I'm there every single time. Their wide receiver core is crazy and I'd love to be a part of it. They're one of the best teams in the nation right now."

Nebraska- "There's really nothing like Nebraska once you go there. The environment is phenomenal and my dad has nothing but good things to say about Mike Riley. I talk to them a lot and I feel like a priority there."

Ohio State- "They are the national champions. I like winning and Urban Meyer sure knows how to win. My cousin (Michael Thomas) is doing really well there too and if he's doing well there I'm sure I can too."

USC- "My mom went to USC and obviously my dad did too and I was raised a Trojan. They will always be on my list. They produce a lot of WRs and I've been around the program since I could remember. I love USC everytime I visit because it feels like home."

Johnson will take yet another visit to Nebraska this coming weekend and said he'll likely visit Ohio State again when they host Michigan State. As for a timeframe for a decision, Johnson has said in the past he wanted to get it done prior to his senior year.

"I'm getting close," Johnson said. "I've already visited all these schools multiple times and know them pretty well. I was thinking the spring or summer before my senior year is when I would decide but honestly, it could happen sooner than that. I'm still sorting everything out but I'm getting there so we'll see what happens."
