On Thursday, the 6-foot-4, 185-pound prospect, currently ranked as the nation's number two quarterback and 19th overall prospect in the 2015 class, took to Twitter to share a photo of him signing his financial aid agreement.
The athlete will enroll at Tech in the spring and will participate in spring ball, joining a talented quarterback roster including Davis Webb and Patrick Mahomes.
Says national recruiting analyst Greg Powers of Stidham, "He is big and strong and has the exact frame you envision. He has a strong arm and a good overall skill set combo. He throws well working outside of the pocket. He is athletic and has the ability to run, which his time at receiver as a sophomore will back up. He is not afraid to take chances with the ball and press the action, shows confidence in decision making, and has as a quick release."
Last season, Stidham caught the eye of many programs after passing for over 2,700 yards, rushing for nearly 1,000 and scoring 47 total touchdowns. His offer list included Alabama, Notre Dame, Texas, Ohio State, and Baylor, among many others.
For those curious what this means for Stidham, associate athletic director Blayne Beal also took to Twitter to explain.

Receivers coach Eric Morris also got into the Twitter action.
Stidham has helped spread the Texas Tech love among recruits, helping the Red Raiders land other big prospects including defensive lineman Breiden Fehoko, offensive linemen Conner Dyer and Madison Akamnonu, and running back Corey Dauphine. Earlier this summer, he attended the Elite 11 quarterback camp, competing alongside the nation's best.
