QB Jarrett Stidham granted release for transfer from Baylor

Former Baylor quarterback Jarrett Stidham gained his release from the school on Monday, he confirmed to ESPN.

Stidham had announced his decision to transfer from Baylor on July 7. He'll have three remaining seasons of eligibility elsewhere after sitting out this fall and has made no decisions on where he'll go next.

As a true freshman, Stidham passed for 1,265 yards and 12 touchdowns with two interceptions in 10 games. He started three games for the Bears before suffering a season-ending ankle injury. Stidham was ESPN's No. 2 rated dual-threat quarterback recruit coming out of Stephenville (Texas) High.
