"I was hoping this [Chizik firing] was not going to happen, but it has been a thought I had," Wilkins told Scout.
"I have some thinking to do now. I might have to open things back up. I am still debating on that. I liked Chizik a lot, so I was hoping this wasn't going to happen."
The 6-foot-1, 210 pound running back out of Cordova (Tenn.) St. Benedictine at Auburndale went down with a broken leg earlier this fall, so he missed some of his senior season.
For now Wilkins is still an Auburn commitment, but stay tuned to Scout.com and AUTigers.com for the latest on him and the Chizik news.
