It’s not yet known where Jarrett Stidham will continue his collegiate playing career. But, when the quarterback does finally make a decision, it appears it’ll continue in the SEC.
On Twitter Tuesday morning, Stidham indicated that he was in Auburn for what would be his third visit to the campus in four months. The former Baylor quarterback first visited the Tigers in early August.

In addition to Auburn, Stidham is also reportedly considering Florida and Texas A&M. It’s believed A&M could be the favorite as Stidham’s girlfriend currently plays soccer at Baylor and geography could come into play.
In July, Stidham confirmed rampant speculation via Twitter that he would be transferring from the Bears and continuing his playing career elsewhere. The only restrictions on the quarterback’s transfer is that he’s not permitted to sign with another Big 12 program. Stidham is currently enrolled at a junior college in Waco, although he didn’t play football this season.
A four-star member of the Bears’ 2015 recruiting class, Stidham was rated as the No. 2 dual-threat quarterback in the country and the No. 7 player at any position in the state of Texas.
Stidham will be eligible to play immediately in 2017 regardless of where he lands. He’ll have three years of eligibility remaining.
