Steelers WR JuJu Smith-Schuster finally gets driver’s license, but won’t abandon bike

Pittsburgh Steelers receiver JuJu Smith-Schuster took to social media to reveal that he has obtained his Pennsylvania drivers license.

The 20-year-old rookie said Monday that he was scheduled to take the driving portion of the state test on Tuesday.

Smith-Schuster, the NFL’s youngest player, grew up in Long Beach, California. He says there was no need to get a driver’s license while attending college at USC because of the school’s ride-sharing program, in which free Uber trips were provided for students.

Teammates Alejandro Villanueva and Le’Veon Bell have helped teach Smith-Schuster how to drive. He said he plans to lease a sensible, well-priced sedan.

Smith-Schuster had been riding his bike back and forth from his apartment to the team’s complex, and two weeks ago he documented its theft on social media. Teammates urged the thief to return it, and fellow receiver Antonio Brown even offered free tickets to a Steelers game for whoever found it.

Shortly thereafter, a person who bought the $800 bike for $200 on the street, called the police to report that he purchased not knowing that it was stolen until he saw it on the news. 

Now that Smith-Schuster has his license, don’t expect him to abandon his beloved bike.
