Houser was a big priority for Michigan State head coach Mel Tucker and his staff, especially after AJ Duffy and Nicco Marchiol committed elsewhere, however Houser was definitely a “Plan A” for the coaching staff. The 6-foot-3, 200-pound quarterback out of St. John Bosco in Bellflower, California (and originally hailing from Nevada) has impressed throughout the summer camp circuit, and has quickly risen up the recruiting rankings board.
Houser is considered a four-star prospect by 247Sports’ individual rankings, and a high-three-star according to the full industry-generated 247Sports Composite rankings. He is listed as the No. 27 quarterback, No. 27 recruit in the state of California and No. 396 overall recruit in the 2022 class, per the Composite rankings. Meanwhile, Rivals.com lists Houser as the No. 18 pro-style quarterback in the class, and the No. 24 player in California.
Last weekend, Houser took his official visit to East Lansing and was clearly impressed with the Michigan State program by the time he left. Houser had been committed to Boise State since April 1, but announced his de-commitment from the Broncos on June 24.
Houser immediately becomes Michigan State’s highest-graded prospect thus far in its 2022 class, with a Composite grade of 0.8884. The class now stands at 12 commitments overall, including seven commitments in the month of June alone.
