According to the above tweets from junior-college recruiting analyst Kevin Lustgarten, the Huskies have signed JUCO transfer quarterback Tony Rodriguez from City College of San Francisco.
It appears Rodriguez visited recently (or is currently visiting), and the photo on the left obviously shows him signing some sort of paperwork. There's been no official word yet from UW, though if he did sign some kind of financial-aid agreement or letter of intent, I'd expect an announcement from the school before too long.
Assuming Rodriguez has officially signed and is indeed on scholarship -- which, again, is unconfirmed as of now -- he would be the Huskies' fourth scholarship quarterback, in addition to fourth-year junior Jeff Lindquist, redshirt freshman K.J. Carta-Samuels and freshman Jake Browning. It would seem unlikely that Rodriguez could compete for the starting quarterback job this season, but if the Huskies do intend to redshirt Browning, it's not a bad idea to add a third scholarship quarterback ahead of him for depth purposes.
According to this Scout.com story, Rodriguez broke his collarbone prior to his senior season at Brookside Christian High School in Stockton, California, and felt the junior-college route would be his best bet after that. He mostly sat as a freshman, but as a sophomore in 2014, he completed 58.8 percent of his passes for "nearly 2,400 yards," per Scout.com, along with 18 touchdowns and three interceptions.
Never miss a local story.
Rodriguez describes himself in that story as a pocket passer. He's listed at 6-foot-3 and 180 pounds, and will has three years of eligibility remaining to play two seasons.
