Four-star quarterback Jeremy Johnson made his commitment to Auburn official on National Signing Day.

Jeremy Johnson, the No. 165-rated recruit according to 247Sports, has officially signed to play for Auburn. Johnson faxed in his National Letter of Intent earlier Wednesday. Johnson, who played for Carver-Montgomery High School, was a long-time Auburn commit, having given his verbal pledge to the Tigers on May 20, 2012.

Johnson had zeroed in on Auburn after also considering offers from eight other schools, including LSU and Ole Miss. He originally committed to play for former Auburn head coach Gene Chizik, and when rumors of Chizik's eventual firing were swirling, he warned on Twitter that he would decommit if the head coach was let go. But Johnson never decommitted, and after Auburn hired Gus Malzahn, he reaffirmed his commitment.

Johnson was the 11th-highest pro-style quarterback in the 247Sports rankings, and he was ranked as the No. 7 player from the state of Alabama. He joins an Auburn squad that struggled at quarterback in 2012, as the Tigers saw three players receive significant snaps. It's possible that he could come in and compete for a starting job immediately
