Kliff Kingsbury lost two quarterbacks to transfers this offseason, but grabbed a big commitment for the future on Friday. 

Jarrett Stidham, the nation’s No. 4 quarterback and a four-star prospect, committed to the Red Raiders on Friday. 

Stidham won’t be able to sign until next February, but he would be the highest-rated prospect to sign with Texas Tech since Kingsbury’s arrival in Dec. 2012. He would arguably be the highest-rated signee in Texas Tech history. 

Stidham had offers from numerous programs including Texas, Texas A&M, Alabama, Baylor, Auburn and Ohio State. 

The Stephenville, Texas native is 6-foot-4, 190 pounds and played some receiver as a sophomore. Last season, he threw for 2,613 yards, 30 touchdowns and just 5 interceptions. He also rushed for 821 yards and 14 touchdowns.
