Michigan State football's latest quarterback commit is already making a name for himself. We all know how much hype is surrounding quarterback Aidan Chiles as MSU heads into next season, but his future teammate Leo Hannan is beginning to make a name for himself as well.

Hannan is a three-star quarterback from Anaheim, Calif. He is a very underrated quarterback according to the 247Sports composite rankings as they only have Hannan as the No. 51 passer in the country. However, 247Sports individual rankings are much higer than that as they have him as the No. 22 quarterback in the country.

Hannan is proving that his overall ranking is far below where it should be as he was named one of nine top performers from the Elite 11 Las Vegas regional.

The Elite 11 is a camp for quarterbacks entering their senior year in high school to go up against each other in various quarterback drills to see who the best in the country is. Hannan took part in the Las Vegas regional recently and impressed everyone enough to be listed as one of the top nine performers from the competition.

The Elite 11 finals are coming up later this summer, but all of the invites have not been sent out yet. Hannan has a very good chance to be invited based on his performance in this regional, but we will have to wait and see if he gets the invite I think he deserves.

Jonathan Smith and his staff deserve a lot of credit for identifying Hannan as soon as they did. He was the first quarterback Michigan State offered in the 2025 class and was the first commit in the Spartan's class as well.

The future of the quarterback room is bright behind Aidan Chiles, but the future beyond him looks extremely positive as well with Hannan coming in who is hoping to be the next gunslinger in East Lansing after Chiles.
