QB didn’t pick SEC, but hopes to play against league one day


Texas native and five-star QB Jarrett Stidham was one of the SEC’s biggest QB targets–but he went public this weekend and announced he’d be playing at Texas Tech next year.

Now, he tells Saturday Down South, he’d love to get a chance to play against an SEC school–whether in a postseason game or maybe a random regular-season matchup. While a multitude of SEC schools wanted him to come on board–including Alabama, who showed a lot of interest the past two months–it wasn’t to be for the QB who threw for 4,000 yards and rushed for 1,000 this past season.

“Yeah definitely, I’d love to play against the SEC,” Stidham told SDS. “I’m originally from Kentucky, and I honestly have no ties to Texas Tech other than I have friends that have gone there. I was just really high on Tech and I’ve Tweeted about how much I like them and stuff. It’s kind of like what Johnny Manziel did at A&M. That’s kind of what I’d like to do, is make my own mark somewhere.”

  • Order of criteria for QB decisions: Educational fit, Playbook, Politically entrenched starters, O-line, Receivers, Schedule, Family, etc. etc. etc.. I’d be interested in seeing today’s high school kids lay out their real priority lists. Some would have enlightening ideas for fans. And how many would include: a hot chic they just happened to see during a visit, and party places, and where their high school friends went, or other ideas whose importance evaporates the first day on campus.
