While in college, JuJu Smith-Schuster legally changed his last name from “Smith” to “Smith-Schuster” in honour of his stepfather.
In football program listings in 2012, he altered his name from “John” to “JuJu,” a moniker an aunt gave him when he was a young child. Smith-Schuster, a true freshman from 2014, started playing right away. In his first career game against Fresno State, he recorded four receptions for 123 yards.
Against the Washington State Cougars, he had six receptions for 74 yards and three touchdowns. By the end of the 2014 season, he had 54 receptions for 724 yards and five touchdowns. In his 14 games as a sophomore in 2015, Smith-Schuster recorded a career-high 1,454 receiving yards and 10 touchdowns.
With the exception of the three-cone drill and short shuttle, Smith-Schuster participated in almost all of the positional drills and combine drills at the NFL Combine.
He chose to participate in the USC Pro Day and ran the three-cone drill. He also performed the broad jump and the vertical jump, improving his combined score on both.
On March 20, 2022, Smith-Schuster committed to the Kansas City Chiefs. The contract had a maximum value of $10.75 million and lasted for one year. In a 20-24 loss to the Buffalo Bills on October 16, 2022, he scored his first touchdown while playing for the Chiefs.
