Despite being nearly 10 months away from National Signing Day for the 2017 class, four-star Calabasas high school (Cali.) wide receiver Keyshawn Johnson Jr. is set to make his college decision on Wednesday. A future early enrollee, Johnson Jr. is expected to completely shut down the recruiting process.

Johnson has also listed schools like USC, Alabama, Clemson and Ohio State as potential landing spots.
Recently ranked the No. 5 wide receiver out west by Scout.com, Johnson Jr. has visited Nebraska six times during the recruiting process. His father, Keyshawn Johnson Sr., played for Nebraska head coach Mike Riley at USC while Riley was the Trojans' offensive coordinator.
“Regardless of where I go, I’m going to recruit,” Johnson told Scout.com recently. “When I go to a school, I’m going to make sure I’m surrounded by the best. I’m going to recruit the best DBs so I can get work every single day. Pat is already a good quarterback, but they need more quarterbacks to throw me the ball.
“No matter where I go, I’m going to find the best players to play with me. I feel like that’s not going to be an issue at all. I feel like I have a pretty good word and if I say something is good, people are going to trust me. Wherever I go, I’m going to recruit as hard as I can. With Nebraska offering all these guys that I know out West that I know, if I was to commit there I think it would make recruiting easy for me.”
Big Red Report has projected since last summer Johnson Jr. would eventually land in Lincoln, but is Josh Harvey's thoughts changing? Watch the video above.
