Gleason will be the sole member of the 2014 class and will be recognized between the first and second quarters of this season's game with archrival Washington.
"With a sold-out Martin Stadium for the Apple Cup, I can think of no better setting to highlight Steve's accomplishments than in front of a fan base that has admired him for so many years," Washington State AD Bill Moos said in a release from the school.
Gleason was a four-year letterman in football and baseball at Washington State (1995-99). In football, he was a three-time All-Pac-10 selection and finished with 282 tackles, ninth-most in school history. He also was a four-time Pac-10 all-academic pick in football.
He played seven seasons in the NFL, all with the Saints (2000-07). He was diagnosed with ALS in 2011.
