Hauser's older brother, Sam, is a rising sophomore at Marquette. The elder Hauser recorded 8.8 points and 5.0 rebounds per game during his 2016-17 freshman campaign. He also shot 45.3 percent from beyond the arc.
Both Hausers stand over 6'7, meaning they could create a dynamic frontcourt tandem once Joey arrives on campus next fall.
This is not the first time Wojciechowski has plucked a talented younger brother of a player already his roster. In 2015, Marquette snagged top-10 commit Henry Ellenson, the younger sibling of then-Marquette forward Wally Ellenson. Henry averaged 17.0 points and 9.7 rebounds in his lone season in Milwaukee before he was drafted by the Detroit Pistons in the first round last summer.
According to 247sports' Evan Flood, Hauser was the Badgers' last target for the 2018 class. Wisconsin did not come up completely empty with this group of recruits though - four-star shooting guard Tyler Herro has been committed to Wisconsin since last September.
