Scout, Rivals and 247Sports rank the 6’7″ Hauser (some sites list him as being 6’8′) as a 4-star recruit. Scout ranks the talented prospect as the no. 30 overall prospect in the nation in the class of 2018.
Hauser averaged 17.8 points per game this past season for a juggernaut Stevens Point squad that went 28-0 and captured the WIAA Division 1 state championship for a second straight year. He did so alongside his brother, Sam, a senior who will attend Marquette on a basketball scholarship. Coach Tony Bennett also offered a scholarship to Sam, who visited Charlottesville before choosing the Golden Eagles.
