ESPN Stats and Information  

The news about Jarrett Stidham committing to Auburn recalls the fact that each of the top three quarterbacks in the class of 2015 has transferred. No. 1 Kyler Murray moved from Texas A&M to Oklahoma, No. 2 Blake Barnett left Alabama for Arizona State, and Stidham left Baylor before the 2016 season.

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."
