Noah Kim had to wait a while for his first career touchdown. Now, he’s on the board after a nice pass to Tre Mosley near the sideline of the end zone.

A 3-star piece of Michigan State’s 2020 recruiting class, Kim has served as the primary backup to Payton Thorne since the start of the 2021 season. With a number of close games last season, playing time has not been easy to find for Kim.

In Week 2 against Akron, Kim was thrust into some playing time after Thorne was shaken up. He saw two plays in the red zone, and he delivered a strike for his first career touchdown.

After scrambling out of the pocket, Kim squared and delivered a bullet near the sideline. It was a pretty throw into a tight window with Mosley making the grab before stepping out of bounds.
