University of Nebraska freshman wide receiver Keyshawn Johnson Jr. was cited for suspicion of possession of marijuana.

Johnson, son of former NFL wide receiver and current ESPN analyst Keyshawn Johnson, also was cited for possession of drug paraphernalia, campus police records show, according to the Omaha World Leader.

A true freshman, Johnson, 18, had more than an ounce of marijuana in his possession in a dorm room and was the only student cited, university police Sgt. Doug Peterson said.

"Head coach Mike Riley and the athletics department are aware of the incident involving Keyshawn Johnson Jr. We will have no additional comment until we have all information regarding this matter," the school said in a statement.

Johnson was among the top recruits in California last season. The 6-foot-1, 195-pounder had 68 receptions as a junior and 48 catches and 11 touchdowns as a senior.
