If Gene Chizik is fired, quarterback Jeremy Johnson will decommit from Auburn

Jeremy Johnson, the four-star quarterback from Carver-Montgomery, tweets that he will decommit if Auburn head coach Gene Chizik is fired.

Should Auburn make a coaching change this offseason, it is inevitable that the Tigers will lose at least a few players currently committed to sign in 2013. One of Auburn's prize recruits, quarterback Jeremy Johnson, made it clear in a twitter conversation Thursday night that he will open up his recruitment if Chizik is given the boot (Johnson is @mrsuper6a).

Johnson committed to Auburn on May 20. He has put up eye-popping numbers this season, completing 70 percent of his passes for 2,211 yards, 28 touchdowns and five interceptions in nine games. At 6'6, 215 pounds, Johnson has the size and ability to be a great pocket passer, and he has enough mobility to provide a running threat. Needless to say, Johnson is the type of player Auburn would love to have under center.

If Chizik is fired and Johnson does decommit, it's certainly possible that he could re-commit to the Tigers' next head coach. However, Auburn would have to fight off a number of other schools, so there's no way of knowing what the Tigers' chances at getting his signature on paper might be.
