Chad Johnson Jr. - the son of NFL great Chad Johnson - is starting to get some interesting offers.

Chad Johnson Jr. is a 6-foot-3 wide receiver from Los Angeles playing for Venice High School with some seriously big shoes to fill. He's now starting to get some decent looks from colleges.

Johnson Jr., a class of 2020 player, now has three offers - and the latest if from a major school. He shared the news that Arizona State has offered him on his Twitter account this week. It looks like Antonio Pierce might be the man recruiting him.

Johnson Jr. also has offers from Florida Atlantic and Oregon State - where his father played.

His father, who briefly changed his name to Chad Ochocinco, played in the NFL from 2001-2012, making stops with the Cincinnati Bengals, New England Patriots and Miami Dolphins. He's a six-time Pro Bowl player with over 11,000 receiving yards and 67 touchdowns.

Johnson is not yet ranked on 247 Sports, but given his legacy, he'll be an interesting prospect to keep an eye on.

Arizona State, meanwhile, will be entering its first season under the helm of former NFL coach Herm Edwards. If the Sun Devils can show some promise, perhaps he'll be able to land top recruits over the next few cycles.
