Baylor QB Jarrett Stidham bulking up in a big way

The Baylor Bears were ecstatic to land five-star quarterback Jarrett Stidham as part of their 2015 recruiting class.

Stidham was ranked as the top dual-threat player in the nation by 247 Sports and his dedication towards improving since arriving on Campus has to be a very promising sign for Baylor and head coach Art Briles.

According to USA Today’s Paul Myerberg, Stidham has put on between twenty and thirty pounds of muscle since joining the team.

Stidham is listed at 195-pounds, so the added weight will put him at a respectable 220-225 pounds.

Baylor 5* freshman QB Jarrett Stidham has put on 20-30 lbs of muscle since arriving on campus in January. He looks like a keeper.

It is quite the impressive improvement for the young signal-caller and that hard work really seems to be paying off.

Stidham is not expected to start this season — that honor will likely go to junior Seth Russell — but the dedication he has shown since arriving in Waco shows that he is very serious about improving himself and he will be ready to go when his number is finally called.
