Cougars pick up junior college quarterback Anthony Gordon

Washington State did not sign a quarterback on National Signing Day in February, but on Thursday announced that junior college quarterback Anthony Gordon signed and will enroll.

Because he was an automatic qualifier out of high school, Gordon did not need to attain an associate degree before transferring to a four-year school. He will have a redshirt year available, and then three years to play after that. If he redshirts the upcoming season, he will be a redshirt sophomore the following year, as will current WSU backup quarterback Tyler Hilinski.

Gordon played with fellow WSU signee Robert Taylor at the City College of San Francisco, leading their team to a California Community College Athletic Association state championship. He was the top Juco passer in the state with 3,864 passing yards, and completed 65.1 percent of his passes.

The 6-foot-3, 185-pound slinger should fit in nicely in the Air Raid offense. As a senior at Terra Nova High he threw for 4,899 yards and 49 touchdowns.
