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.
