As a true freshman, Stidham played in 10 games for the Bears, completing 75-of-109 passes for 1,265 yards, 12 touchdowns, and two interceptions. He added two rushing touchdowns. As a high school recruit, 247Sports’ internal rankings had Stidham No. 1 among 2015 dual-threat quarterbacks, and No. 2 in the same category in the site’s composite rankings.
In limited snaps, Stidham displayed the talent that made him one of the nation’s top high school passers. Whichever team he ends up with is getting a big-time college quarterback.
