Two days after Steelers running back James Conner dropped a video of himself gifting a house to his mother, JuJu Smith-Schuster posted a video gifting a house to his own family. The fourth-year wideout took to YouTube to document the experience.
This is one of the biggest accomplishments of my life and a dream come true! I’ve wanted to do this for so long, finally being able to do this is just unbelievable to me. Check out the video! ➡️ https://t.co/7sNIZ1J5S0 pic.twitter.com/qysVCWgUhn— JuJu Smith-Schuster (@TeamJuJu) July 6, 2020
While the receiver had broken the news to his mother months ago, and to his siblings back on June 19th, Monday was the first time Smith-Schuster had said anything about it on social media.
The 23 year old Smith-Schuster bought a six-Bedroom, five-bathroom mega mansion in Yorba Linda, California. JuJu credited not having a bed of his own, until college, into one of the factors in buying such a big property.
Smith-Schuster’s mother, Sammy took to instagram to publicly thank her son for the extravagant gift.

Dear Son, To say “Thank you” is an understatement of how I truly feel. Emotional roller coaster of feelings on what you have done for the family. At the age of 23 you have done the ultimate. Buying a new home for us. I can never repay you Son. All I can do is continue to Love you unconditionally and continue to protect you from them snakes in this business lol.. The Schuster’s have officially moved into the beautiful city of Yorba Linda. They ain’t ready. Lol We are ready to make new memories in our beautiful home. Thank you Son. ~LoveMom #blessings #Grateful #GodIsGood #humble #MySonIsAmazing #HasAHeartOfGold #BlessingsOnBlessings #MarketingMoney #NFLContractSaved #BeingSmart #Driven #Purpose #Blessed #Beyond #myimagination #TYJ
Smith-Schuster’s announcement comes on the heels of teammate, James Conner posting a video to his own account showing his mothers reaction to receiving a house from him, and before that Conner bought his father a new truck. Earlier yet in the offseason, Steelers rookie wide-out Chase Claypool gave both his parents brand new cars.
JuJu will be hoping 2020 is a bounce-back year for him, as the fourth-year pro put up career lows in receptions, yards, and touchdowns in 2019. With good karma hopefully now on Smith-Schuster’s side, he can bounce back to Pro Bowl form as he heads into a contract year. And, if all goes well, we may just see more generous acts from the youngster.
