Dark Bronco Foreshadowing? Johnson Decommits

Jaylen Johnson has decommitted from Boise State, the highly sought after Defensive End told Scout.com's Lindsey Thiry on Friday evening. This decommitment could be just the first of the recruiting fall-out from Head Coach Chris Petersen's defection from Boise State to the Washington Huskies.

Jaylen Johnson had figured prominently into the Boise State 2014 recruiting class, filling a need for young talent on the Defensive Line.

Back in September, just before committing to Boise State, Johnson told Scout.com that, "Boise State was one of the first schools to offer me and has been recruiting me harder than anyone from day one. Ever since the spring, that's the school that I've talked with the most and when I visited in the summer, it felt like home for me."

That feeling, however, was not the buildings on campus or the new Bronco Football Facility, completed less than a year ago,, "I'm looking for more than anything- a place that feels like home and a place where I'm comfortable with the players and coaches."

That comfort with the Coaches is what finally put Boise State over the likes of Oregon and USC, but with the loss of Chris Petersen and possibly most of his staff, obviously the feeling has changed for Johnson.

He has officially decommitted from Boise State and has reopened his recruiting, listing USC, Cal, and ironically, Washington, as his new leaders.

BroncoCountry will continue to keep a finger on the pulse of the Bronco 2014 recruiting class for the latest that develops from the loss of Chris Petersen and Staff.
