Keyshawn Johnson Jr., a four-star wide receiver in the 2017 class, left Nebraska's football program before his first season with the team. The son of the NFL wide receiver reportedly got in trouble over the summer and Keyshawn Johnson decided to pull his son from the program.

After Mike Riley was fired as the team's head coach, many expected Johnson Jr. wouldn't stay with the team for long. After a few months, Johnson Jr. announced his plans to attend another university.

In January, he posted a photo revealing his new program. He's decided to transfer to Arizona.

However, it seems he's not on the Arizona football roster.

The former 4-star wide receiver also considered USC and Ohio State before committing to Nebraska. With Scott Frost taking over the Huskers, it looks like Johnson Jr. saw this as an opportunity to make his exit.

A quick search on Arizona's website shows Johnson is not a part of the football program. One of the top wide receiver recruits from the 2017 class remains, Johnson has had a difficult start to his collegiate career.
