Scottsdale Saguaro High School's sharp-shooting 5-foot-11, 165-pound senior point guard prospect Mike Hauser is coming off an excellent season for himself. The heady, fundamentally sound point man had his best season as a senior - averaging 16.5 points, 5.5 assists and 3.7 rebounds per/game.
As a result, Hauser saw his college recruitment take off this season. Hauser picked up offers from Peru State, Concordia University (CA) and Arizona Christian University and also received strong interest from such schools as Chico State and Point Loma University.
This week, after giving careful consideration to each program, Hauser decided to sign a scholarship with Concordia University, one of the top division-II programs in the country. Hauser indicated to Arizona Preps that with his family moving back to California, he wanted to be close to his family.
Hauser's mother, Mary Hauser, is one of the nicest mother's around and is a big-time coach herself. A former girl's head coach at California's storied Mater Dei High School in Santa Ana, CA, Mary Hauser currently teaches at a high school in California, and has bounced back and forth between states to be with her family. Now Mike will have an opportunity to be much closer to his mother.
Mike Hauser was one of the top unsigned point guard prospects in Arizona. A great spot-up shooter of the basketball, as well as off the dribble, Hauser is also able to get past his defenders and to the basket pretty effectively, and has the vision to look up and find open teammates. He has a very good basketball IQ and plays with very good energy on the floor. A floor general that keeps defenses very honest with his ability to make shots with unlimited range.
Mike played last spring and summer with the Arizona Stars, and played this spring with the Arizona Rebels.
Congratulations to Mike and his family from our staff here at Arizona Preps.
Arizona Hoop Review Scouting Report: Hauser has a very quick and accurate shooting stroke with unlimited range on his shot, and he is able to get it off very easily. Shoots the basketball the way players once shot the basketball and has an excellent feel for the game. An unheralded prospect in Arizona's 2013 class, but definitely a name that smaller programs need to remember. Really knows how to play the game. A good ball handler and passer that sees the floor and is very unselfish. Solid defender, will not hurt you. Competes.
