He's already been recruited to play at Miami University and at Florida State where his Dad played college football. Mark Richt, the coach of the Miami Hurricanes and Max's Uncle, said his nephew is "a legitimate baller."
Brad Johnson was drafted by the Vikings in 1992, and appeared in 39 games from '94-'98. He then played with Washington and Tampa Bay where he led the Buccaneers to a Super Bowl win in 2002.
In 2005, he returned to Minnesota and started 23 more games before eventually retiring as a member of the Dallas Cowboys in 2008.
