Madison Academy's Kerryon Johnson has the talent to fit any college scheme.

Auburn had the "family culture" that fit the players need.

"You know how you can trust that and you are safe in that," Johnson said after he announced his commitment to Auburn. "It's a small town, but there's a fire to it. That feeling right there is what separates them."

Johnson picked Auburn over Alabama and Florida State. He's the sixth member of the Tigers Class of 2015.

Johnson is a four star prospect and the nation's No. 4 athlete according to Rivals.com. He played running back, wide receiver, safety and returned kicks for Madision Academy, who have won the past two Class 3A state titles.

Johnson says Auburn has told him that he'll play running back in college.

"They specialize in getting players the ball in space," Johnson said. "That's something I feel like that's something they can do with me."
