Highly touted prospect Joey Hauser committed to Marquette this afternoon. The four-star big man chose the Golden Eagles over Wisconsin, Michigan State and other top programs.

Hauser, who attends SPASH, is the little brother of Marquette forward Sam Hauser. Future Badgers such as Tyler Herro were vocal about trying to lure Hauser to Madison which would’ve rounded out an incredible young core for Wisconsin in Kobe King, Herro and Hauser. The Badgers will have to turn to other options.

Hauser is the 37th ranked prospect in the nation according to 24/7 Sports. He is Marquette’s first commit for 2018.
