Michigan State football lands 2020 QB Noah Kim from Virginia
Michigan State football got some good news for the future during its bye week.
The Spartans picked up a quarterback for their 2020 recruiting class Wednesday night as Noah Kim announced his commitment via Twitter. He took an official visit to MSU for the Penn State game on Saturday.
Kim — a 6-foot-2, 180-pounder who is a three-star recruit according to 247Sports.com’s composite rankings — decommitted from Virginia Tech on Oct. 23. He also had offers from Western Michigan, Fordham, Holy Cross, Howard, Sacred Heart and William & Mary.
Kim is the 15th three-star pledge for the Spartans' 16-player 2020 class, with legacy DB Darius Snow the lone four-star prospect. He is rated the 52nd-best pro-style QB prospect nationally and the No. 28 player in Virginia; Kim becomes the sixth offensive player to join the class.
Through eight games this season for Westfield High in Chantilly, Virgina, Kim is 78 of 128 for 1,370 yards passing with 16 TDs, no interceptions and no sacks. He also has five rushing scores.
With Brian Lewerke graduating this season, the Spartans are expected to have a competition for the starting job. Kim would join a QB room that includes sophomore Rocky Lombardi, redshirt freshman Theo Day and freshman Payton Thorne. MSU coach Mark Dantonio tries to have one quarterback in each recruiting class.
