Michigan State football went a long time in 2019 without a quarterback commit, but that all changed with the addition of Noah Kim.
Noah Kim, a 6-foot-2, 180-pound product from Chantilly, Va., committed to Michigan State football on Oct. 30 of last season and the best word to describe him is ‘winner’. He played a ton of football and was incredibly successful.
Though he did not have a long list of Power Five schools chasing after him but he had been committed to Virginia Tech before Michigan State wrestled him away.
Kim is a typical Mark Dantonio quarterback as a player who needs to be developed, but could the signal-caller by his junior season.
Now, how he fares in the new regime under Mel Tucker is anybody’s guess. Tucker rolled with Colorado’s incumbent quarterback Steven Montez. By year three of his tenure, he should have his own quarterback prospect in the mix. However, all of this is speculation.
One thing that Tucker does like in his quarterbacks, that Kim has, is the ability to make plays. He has been great at this in high school. Whether it is throwing on the run or extending plays with his legs Kim had much success.
I would compare Kim’s game with former Spartans Drew Stanton or Brian Lewerke. Like Lewerke, Kim does need to work on his mechanics and accuracy, but there is loads of potential with him.
Tucker wants playmakers on the field and if Kim can show that then Spartan fans will see him sooner rather than later.
