Jarrett Stidham has it confirmed — his career at Auburn is finished.
The redshirt junior announced Tuesday evening he will forego his final season of eligibility and declare for the 2019 NFL Draft, confirming the Tuesday morning reports.
Stidham finishes his career fourth in passing yards for Auburn and third in passing touchdowns.
"Jarrett has been a terrific player for us the last two years, leading us to an SEC West title and becoming one of the most prolific passers in Auburn history," said Auburn head coach Gus Malzahn. "He has tremendous ability and a bright future ahead of him. I look forward to seeing Jarrett perform one more time in an Auburn uniform and can't wait to see him playing in the NFL next year and for years to come."
Stidham, who has been Auburn's starting quarterback since 2017, helped lead Auburn to an SEC West title and SEC Championship appearance last season.
Stidham currently has 5,579 passing yards and 31 touchdowns for Auburn and will get one more game as a Tiger against Purdue on Dec. 28th in The Music City Bowl.
