Following the announcement of Jacory Harris being placed on the six-game injured list, the Hamilton Tiger-Cats announced the signing of former Notre Dame and Florida State quarterback Everett Golson.
Golson led the Fighting Irish to the National Championship Game in 2013 before being suspended from Notre Dame for “poor academic judgment”. Golson sat out all of 2013 before returning to Notre Dame in 2014 and subsequently transferring to Florida State following a lackluster season. He ended his NCAA career by throwing for 1,749 yards, 11 touchdowns and 3 interceptions with the Seminoles.
Golson has a long way to go before seeing any CFL action, but this signing along with the Vernon Adams Jr. signing could continue to attract even more NCAA quarterbacks north of the border.
