AUBURN -- Other schools such as Ole Miss and LSU are coming after him hard. Auburn, the school he committed to in May, is struggling with its worst start in more than a decade.

But all that hasn’t deterred Jeremy Johnson.

The 4-star quarterback from Carver in Montgomery, Ala., remains firmly committed to Auburn although he’s sticking to his plan to visit a couple of other schools.

“I’m still 100 percent right now. I’m still 100 percent signing with Auburn,” Johnson said following Carver’s 46-20 win at Auburn High School Friday.

“I love Coach (Gene) Chizik and the coaching staff and I love the fans. I love everybody out here now because they’re crazy about me and they want me there.”

Johnson, 6-foot-5 and 215 pounds, had a huge game combining for more than 300 yards passing and rushing and five touchdowns in front of a national audience on ESPNU.

In typical fashion, Johnson credited his teammates for the win.

“I was just doing my job,” he said.
