    2022 quarterback Katin Houser impressed by Ohio State

    The fun thing about camp season is getting to learn about new names from around the country and seeing how the Ohio State coaching staff works with each young player they evaluate. It’s pretty amazing to observe the attention to detail given to each prospect as they teach, train and talk with an aim to improve the kid’s game and their own relationships with the recruit.

    Last week, the Buckeyes held their first one-day camp of the summer with four other camp days coming this week. One of the top quarterbacks in attendance was Henderson (Nev.) 2022 standout Katin Houser, who ventured east on the first leg of what’s going to be a lengthy summer tour.

    “When I left Ohio State, we immediately flew to Arizona State and threw for the offensive coordinator,” Houser told Lettermen Row. “We are trying to schedule a visit to Iowa State and throw for Coach Joel Gordon, the quarterbacks coach. I have a throwing session with UC-Davis. … Kansas would also like for me to throw as well, if I throw for Kansas State.

    “Right now I am getting prepared for a throwing session at the University of Washington. I will be throwing with Washington commits Ethan Garbers and Sam Huard. Washington has been out to the school to see me throw twice.”

    Welcome to the insane life of a young quarterback working for more offers, right? A 6-foot-1, 175-pound quarterback, Houser has an early offer from Hawaii, and he’ll make that trip this season with his team at Liberty High School as they log thousands of miles and square up against a handful of the country’s best teams — including nearby Bishop Gorman High School in Las Vegas, St. John Bosco and Corona Centennial in California, Chandler High School in Arizona and more. It’s all a part of the process for Houser, who is taking the business of being a quarterback very seriously. He travels to Los Angeles twice a month to work with one of the country’s best young private quarterback coaches to hone his talents.

    “Twice a month I travel to California to train with Danny Hernandez,” Houser said. “He trains top quarterbacks like DJ Uiagalelei, Bryce Young, Maalik Murphy. Me and Maalik are two of a few sophomores attending QB Collective Camp in July.”

    But first, among all that travel, was Ohio State. The Buckeyes left a big impression on Houser, who expects to land somewhere around 6-foot-4 inches by the time he’s finished with a growth spurt that has seen him become seven inches taller in the last year.

    “I thought the camp went really well, and I thought I competed well with the other quarterbacks,” he said. “I learned a lot from [Ryan] Day and [quarterbacks coach Mike] Yurcich. I appreciated the feedback that I received from them and I learned a lot about the love and support that the city has for the program.

    “I love Ohio State, it is definitely a college town and the people are very passionate about Ohio State football. Living in the desert, I love the fact that it’s green over there and I was blown away by the stadium and the facilities. The campus is beautiful and the school pertains to my interests. I could 100 percent see myself being a student-athlete at Ohio State. The most important thing for me is academics. As a 4.0 student, having the opportunity to go to a strong academic school is critical.”
