Earlier today, the Cougars offered 3-star pro-style signal caller, Tyler Shough. The Chandler, Arizoan native is the No. 16-ranked pro-style quarterback recruit in the Class of 2018 and has all the necessary tools to become a successful collegiate gunslinger.
Shough stands at 6-foot-5 and possesses a strong, accurate arm. According to Shough’s Twitter account, he currently weighs 195 pounds. So he may need to add 10-to-15 more pounds of muscle once he gets to college.
Shough is a fast-rising prospect in the Class of 2018. The Hamilton High School quarterback has been receiving a lot offers as of late, including what he calls a “dream offer” from the Michigan Wolverines.
While receiving an offer from Michigan, Shough also holds offers from schools like Missouri, South Carolina, Indiana and Harvard. The signal caller has also already taken visits to Nebraska, Arizona State—both have yet to offer Shough—and South Carolina. Washington State is Shough’s first Pac-12 offer.
Last season, Shough threw for 2,079 yards, 27 touchdowns and nine interceptions while completing 62.2 percent of his passes according to MaxPreps. He also ran for 102 yards and two scores on 57 carries.
