Former Baylor Quarterback Jarrett Stidham was representing Auburn on Thursday at SEC Media Days in Atlanta, but if he had his way, at one point, he would likely be there with Texas A&M.
Stidham played as a true freshman at Baylor but elected to transfer after the 2015 season when Art Briles was fired. In the wake of his decision to transfer Stidham had circled Texas A&M as a possible landing spot, but the feeling was not mutual, at the time.
“Honestly Coach Sumlin, he didn’t recruit me too hard,” Stidham said on Thursday. “I probably tried to recruit myself to A&M a little bit harder. Just because iot was in state, it was right down the road from where I was in Waco. I had some family to go A&M before. Ideally A&M was a close spot, so I could see my family whenever I wanted. I honestly knew from the get-go, that I was probably going to end up at Auburn.”
Stidham led Auburn to 42-27 win at Kyle Field last season.
