USC recruiting: Trojans offer Keyshawn Johnson Jr. a scholarship

USC offers 2017 WR Keyshawn Johnson, Jr., the son of former All-American Keyshawn Johnson, a scholarship

USC is keeping it in the family.

Keyshawn Johnson, Jr. -- the son of former Trojans All-American Keyshawn Johnson – announced he received a scholarship offer Friday on Twitter.

The Johnsons made an unofficial visit to USC on Friday.

“Blessed to say I have received an offer from the University of Southern California. #FightOn,” wrote Johnson, Jr., a 2017 recruit.

Last season, in nine games at Calabasas High, the 6-foot-1, 195-pound receiver caught 41 passes for 572 yards and three touchdowns.

He has more than a dozen scholarship offers, according to Rivals and Scout.
