The quarterback position is key to any college football offense, but even more so at Washington State. In the six seasons under coach Mike Leach the Cougars have ranked in the top nine nationally in passing every year, finishing in the top three each of the last four seasons.
In that time they’ve produced two of the most prolific passers in Pac-12 history, with Luke Falk becoming the conference’s all-time passing leader during the 2017 season.
WSU may have found its next big-time quarterback in Gunner Cruz, a 3-star prospect from Queen Creek, Ariz. who committed on Thursday.

The 6-foot-4, 220-pound Cruz is ranked No. 1,057 in the 2019 recruiting class by 247Sports. He’s the 35th-best pro-style passer in the country and had 17 scholarship offers, including from Baylor and SMU.
Cruz threw for 5,775 yards and 70 touchdowns the past two seasons for Casteel High School.
