Keyshawn Johnson Sr. made an appearance on ESPN this afternoon and discussed his reasoning for pulling his son from Nebraska football in a very candid interview.
"He got there in January and he missed some time because he had his appendix removed, so he was a little behind," Johnson Sr. said. "So he found himself getting into things that he shouldn't have been getting into, smoking weed. And I know everybody says 'weed's not that big of a deal, it's just like wine and beer and cigarrettes and cigars', and yes that's true. But the problem is, they say don't do it."
Johnson Jr. was sited for possession of marijuana on campus at Nebraska June 10 and it was announced he would be leaving the program June 20.
