The transfer quarterback seemed to enjoy his visit, but according to 247Sports’ Keith Niebuhr, who cites sources, there may be one key for Auburn in landing Stidham: offensive coordinator Rhett Lashlee.
According to Niebuhr, the former 5-star recruit wants to play for Lashlee, but has expressed concern about the offensive coordinator leaving Auburn. The two are very close and have talked daily for “some time,” according to the report.
Two things stick out the Stidham about Lashlee: The way he worked with former Tigers quarterback Nick Marshall, and also Sean White’s production this season.
Stidham’s visit was reportedly switched from an unofficial to official visit, and he feels that he could be the missing piece in Auburn, according to Niebuhr.
The grad transfer quarterback has not visited Texas A&M.
