New Auburn QB Jarrett Stidham says he is on his way to campus from Texas, this time for good.
Stidham enrolled early and began practicing with the team in December. But the new Tigers quarterback is now heading to Auburn permanently, and he let fans know he was on the way Thursday.
See you later Waco, thanks for the memories. Sweet home Alabama, here I come! #WDE

Stidham was a 4-star recruit and the No. 1 JUCO prospect in the country this year. He committed to Auburn over Florida and Texas A&M. He had been attending McLennan C.C. in Waco, Texas after transferring from Baylor over the summer.
The sophomore quarterback saw action in 10 games as a true freshman at Baylor, including three starts. He completed 68.8 percent of his passes for 1,365 yards, 12 touchdowns and 2 interceptions. He also ran for 2 touchdowns.
The Tigers certainly need a spark offensively after their performance in a 35-19 loss to Oklahoma in the Sugar Bowl. He is eligible to play in 2017 and is expected to compete for the starting job immediately when Auburn begins spring practice in a few months.
