Top JUCO QB Stidham commits to Auburn

AUBURN, AL (WTVM) - Auburn reeled in a major commitment Saturday night when former Baylor QB Jarrett Stidham announced he's heading to the Plains.

Stidham is the number one ranked JUCO prospect by ESPN.

He sat out this season after announcing he'd transfer from Baylor this summer when the team fired head coach Art Briles.

Stidham threw for more than 12-hundred yards and 12 touchdowns in three starts as a freshman for the Bears. Stidham said his relationship with offensive coordinator Rhett Lashlee made a difference.

He'll be eligible to play next year.
