Michigan State landed their quarterback for the 2022 cycle, gaining a commitment from Katin Houser, flipping the four-star prospect from Boise State.

This was a huge recruiting win for Mel Tucker and the Spartans, getting a high-profile quarterback to headline the coach’s second recruiting class at the helm in East Lansing is a big boost to the program.

Katin Houser is someone that Spartan fans hadn’t heard much about until the staff made a strong push at the end of June. Although he may be a new face, there is still a lot to be excited about.

Let’s get caught up to speed and get to know Michigan State’s newest signal-caller:

Player Profile

Name: Katin Houser Hometown: Bellflower, California High School: St. John Bosco Height: 6'3" Weight: 200 pounds Class: 2022

Here is how Houser stacks up in the recruiting rankings across all of the recruiting sites: 247Sports Composite: 3-Star, No. 396 in the nation, No. 27 QB in the nation, .8884 rating 247Sports: 4-star, No. 16 QB in the nation, 90 rating Rivals: 3-star, No. 18 Pro-Style QB in the nation, 5.7 rating ESPN: 4-star, No. 20 QB in the nation, 80 rating

Scouting Report

Houser is the definition of a gunslinger, he is the type of quarterback who can make every throw on the football field and make it accurately. He has a huge arm with great pocket awareness as well and can extend plays with his feet. Houser is the QB of St. John Bosco, a high school football powerhouse that is currently ranked the No. 3 high school team in the country. Bosco makes sure to play a schedule that is stacked with nationally ranked teams and talent, so Houser will be battle-tested by the time he is on campus. Houser's recruitment was taken to the next level at the beginning of this month as a result of Houser performing better than many other quarterbacks on the camp scene. Houser earned an invite to the Elite 11 finals next week through his performance at the Elite 11 Los Angeles camp. He will have the ability to compete against 19 of the best QBs in the country.

Impact

Houser will have a strong influence on the 2022 recruiting class. Being a strong headliner for the class, showing his ability as a quarterback will draw others to want to play with the star QB. Houser is the perfect person to headline Michigan State's class and to continue to preach Mel Tucker's 'relentless' message. Houser will be entering a QB room next season along with Payton Thorne, Noah Kim, and Hamp Fay, and will provide the ability to compete with them immediately. Spartan fans should be excited about the addition of Houser and will welcome him to the Spartan family with open arms.
