Rodriguez broke his left collarbone as a senior at Brookside Christian High School in Stockton, Calif. He was a backup as a freshman at CCSF, then starred as the sophomore starter last fall, earning NorCal offensive player of the year honors while completing 58.8 percent of his passes for nearly 2,400 yards with 18 touchdowns and three interceptions, according to Scout.com.
“I’m probably more of a pocket-passer,” Rodriguez told Scout in April. “I can run when I need to, but I am at my best when I can drop back, read a defense and get the ball to my receivers and let them do what they do best.”
Rodriguez has two years of eligibility remaining with a redshirt year available, according to Scout.
He gives the Huskies a fourth quarterback at an unsettled position.
Junior Jeff Lindquist, UW’s backup last fall, was the only quarterback on the spring roster with any game experience. He competed in the spring with redshirt freshman K.J. Carta-Samuels and touted true freshman Jake Browning during spring ball.
Junior Cyler Miles, UW’s starter in 2014, remains on indefinite leave from the program.
