The Auburn Tigers played most of the spring session with star QB Jarrett Stidham having only limited availability.

That’s because he was recovering from offseason shoulder surgery and wasn’t at full strength during spring practices.

Now that the summer is quickly approaching, though, Stidham told that he’s feeling much better and he’s anxious to get back on the field:

“I feel great,” he said. “Shoulder’s good finally, and it’s been a good summer so far. Just continuing to get momentum as we go forward into the rest of the summer.”

As far as any restrictions, Stidham said he should be a full-go when the preparations for the 2018 season begin in earnest:

“Now I’m good to go,” he said.

Having a fully healthy Stidham will be very important for the Tigers as they try to repeat as SEC West champions and earn a spot in the College Football Playoff. Fortunately for coach Gus Malzahn, the signs are positive right now.
