Longshore spent the 2004 season as a redshirt and was the team's starting quarterback for the 2005, 2006, and 2007 seasons, although he started several games in 2008. He led the Bears to a share of the Pac-10 title in 2006.
Longshore graduated from Canyon High School in 2004. He set ten school passing records and rang up 6,750 yards and 64 touchdown passes during his career. Rivals.com rated him the No. 8 "pro-style" quarterback in the nation and the 17th-best overall player in California.
After redshirting his freshman year, Longshore was chosen to succeed Aaron Rodgers, who left for the NFL, to be California's starting quarterback. Longshore's 2005 season ended in the season's first game with a fibula injury and ligament damage in his ankle against Sacramento State. Joe Ayoob took over starting duties for Longshore.
