The most famous bloodline in football might always belong to the Manning family, but it appears another father-son duo could be on the horizon. Although he wasn't considered an elite quarterback during his playing days, Brad Johnson led the Tampa Bay Buccaneers to the Super Bowl in 2002.

Now, he'll have the opportunity to watch his son follow in his footsteps. While Max Johnson still attends high school, the talented recruit just announced his commitment.

Johnson revealed his decision on Twitter, as he'll commit to the LSU Tigers.

Here is the post:

According to 247Sports, Johnson is the No. 68 recruit in the country and No. 5 pro-style quarterback in the class of 2020.

Florida State, Miami and Georgia were all in pursuit of the four-star recruit.

LSU always has premier talent on both sides of the football, but they lack consistency under center. Even though Joe Burrow is a legitimate quarterback for the Tigers, he only has one more season of eligibility remaining.

If Johnson received his skill from his father, then he might just find himself in the NFL eventually. Until then, the talented recruit will have to wait for his chance to shine at Death Valley.
