Sacramento State quarterback Kevin Thomson will become a Washington Husky. Thompson made his transfer decision on Wednesday.
Thomson is a graduate transfer meaning he will be eligible immediately for the Huskies. He started his collegiate career at UNLV where he spent two seasons without seeing any game action in 2014 and 2015.
In 2017 and 2018, he started a combined 15 games throwing for a combined 3,208 yards (55%) with 25 touchdowns and 4 interceptions. He also rushed for 628 yards and 9 touchdowns.
Last season he threw for 3,216 yards with 27 touchdowns and 8 interceptions while rushing for another 619 yards and 12 touchdowns. He led Sacramento State to its first FCS Playoff appearance as the fourth seed. They were upset 42-28 by Austin Peay in the second round.
Thomson was named Big Sky Offensive Player of the Year, First Team All-Big Sky, and an All-American for his 2019 season.
Thomson is a native of Auburn, Washington, a suburb of Seattle. The Huskies begin the 2020 season against Michigan at home on September 5 and the second game of the season is against Sacramento State.
Sacramento State’s first game of the upcoming season is scheduled against San Diego State on Saturday, September 5.
