Jarrett Stidham reaffirms commitment to Baylor

The Baylor Bears have had some pretty awful luck with players sticking around the last week or so as they have lost a number of recruits after firing Art Briles. However, backup quarterback Jarrett Stidham will not be going anywhere as he enters the 2016 season.

Stidham, a rising true sophomore who took over for Seth Russell after he fractured a vertebrae in his neck, had a pretty good run for the Bears before he broke his ankle and missed the last few games of the year.

He took to Instagram Monday night and made it seem pretty clear that he isn’t going anywhere.

Jarrett Stidham was a huge addition to the Bears’ 2015 recruiting class and it certainly seems like he could take over the starting job at any point. It certainly seems like his for the taking in at least the 2017 season.

Last year, he threw for 1,265 yards and 12 touchdowns and just two interceptions in ten games for the Bears. He is going to be a big piece for the team going forward and their success could depend on how he and Russell perform this year.
