NFL star's son emerging in 2017 class

Keyshawn Johnson has a son already generating college football buzz, and the former 11-year NFL wide receiver is already helping showcase Keyshawn Johnson Jr (Mission Viejo).

Time to break down the next Keyshawn:

WHAT TO LIKE: Keyshawn Johnson Jr. already has nice hands and rarely has drops. Shows good concentration when hauling in catches. A devastating run blocker who can knock a linebacker or safety on his back. Has some elusiveness after the catch. Already has good height for a freshman (6-foot-1) and will likely grow.

WHAT TO BUILD ON: He doesn't have amazing speed right now. Granted, he's been going against older competition during the camp/tournament season and can build his speed. Also can use muscle down the road. He'll likely face lots of press coverages.

OVERALL: Johnson Jr. already has Arizona State and Florida State offers. Three major seasons on the camp circuit and fall season could make him the most highly-sought player in the 2017 class. A source close to me says Johnson Jr. is making an appearance at Passing Down on March 30 in Fontana. I'll be looking forward to watching him work.
