Jeremy Crabtree RecruitingNation
Auburn landed the most impactful and arguably the most coveted recruit in the entire 2017 recruiting class Saturday when quarterback Jarrett Stidham committed. Stidham, a Baylor transfer and the top-ranked player in the RecruitingNation junior college 50 list, picked the Tigers over Florida and Texas A&M. From a recruiting standpoint, Stidham's pledge will give Auburn a huge shot in the arm, especially with offensive playmakers. A rival SEC coach said "elite receivers will look Auburn's way because of Stidham's commitment."
