Marquette Lands 2018 Forward Joey Hauser


Joey Hauser, the 6-foot-8 power forward from Stevens Point Area Senior (WI) High School, announced his commitment to Steve Wojciechowski and the Marquette Golden Eagles on Sunday via Twitter.

According to 247Sports, Hauser is ranked as the No. 37 overall player in the Class of 2018 and the No. 1 player from the state of Wisconsin. He is the first commit in Marquette’s 2018 class but will also be joined by Brendan Bailey, who committed to Marquette in October 2015, and he’s currently in the final year of his two-year LDS mission. His brother, Sam Hauser, will be a sophomore for the Golden Eagles this fall.

Hauser chose Marquette over schools such as Michigan State, Wisconsin, Iowa, Iowa State, Nebraska, Northern Iowa, Northwestern, Notre Dame, Purdue, Virginia, and Bradley. He took unofficial visits to Wisconsin (Feb. 19 and June 22), Michigan State (Feb. 26 and June 24), and Marquette (June 23).

Marquette has one scholarship remaining in the class of 2018. Playing on the adidas Gauntlet with the Iowa Barnstormers this summer, Hauser has averaged 17.9 points, 5.3 rebounds, and 1.6 assists through seven games. He helped lead the Barnstormers to an 8-5 record on the circuit.

Although they missed out on Hauser, the Michigan State Spartans are still in good shape for the future as they are now favored to win the 2018 NCAA title and have the No. 2 ranked recruiting class in 2018.
