Instead, the four-star recruit is joining a conference foe: the Iowa Hawkeyes.
Keagan Johnson Commits to Iowa
— Hawkeye Football (@HawkeyeFootball) December 16, 2020
Keagan Johnson received plenty of interest from programs such Florida, Iowa State, Kansas State, Nebraska, North Dakota State, Northern Illinois, South Dakota State, and Wyoming.
This lack of execution has to sting for the Cornhuskers more than usual, especially with the Johnson family legacy at the school. Keagan's father, Clester Johnson, was a wingback for Nebraska and won two national championships.
Iowa's football recruiting class might not be as impressive as other teams in their conference, but head coach Kirk Ferentz and wide receivers coach Kelton Copeland are hoping to have continued success with this potent offense in Iowa City.
Keagan Johnson Highlights
Keagan Johnson is a playmaker. He was featured in just about every play in Michael Huffman's offense and proved he could be effective as a team's top option time and time again.

In 2019, Johnson scored eight touchdowns and helped lead Bellevue to a state title appearance. If needed in a pinch, Johnson has experience at defensive back as well, but he is ready to take flight as a wideout in college.
Keagan Johnson is crossing state lines to continue his playing career.
Despite the family connection to Nebraska, the Hawkeyes will be the ones getting this stud.
