RP: First off, congrats man. What made you decide to do this now and how long has this been in the works?
Stidham: Thank you! And a few weeks. I wanted to do it so I could start talking to them (Texas Tech coaches, staff, etc.) as much as possible!
RP: That's cool. Does it effect how much you can talk to other 2015 recruits? I know you and Breiden [Fehoko] have been recruiting a lot.
Stidham: No, I just have to keep doing what I have been doing.
RP: Nice. Yeah no kidding, it's working. I have to ask about [Conner] Dyer and [Madison] Akamnonu committing and your reaction to a couple four-star guys up front joining the class?
Stidham:It's huge! I couldn't be happier with those guys! I'm pumped they're on board.
RP: What was the Tech coaching staff's reacton to you signing the financial aid agreement?
Stidham: They were pumped!!
RP: I was interested to see you'll be playing Lubbock Cooper on ESPN this season. What was your and the Ville's reaction to that?
Stidham: We're excited for the opportunity to play on ESPN.
RP: Thanks for your time and once again congrats.
Stidham: No problem man. Thanks!
