One week after the Kansas State spring scrimmage, wide receiver Hunter Rison has been arrested on domestic battery charges.
Head coach Chris Klieman also released a statement saying, “Our program will be one that is built on hard work and integrity and doing things the right way. We have extremely high expectations for our players on and off the field.”
Rison is the son of former NFL pro Andre Rison. He came to Kansas State after transferring from Michigan State following the 2017 season.
Rison caught 19 passes in his freshman season with the Spartans. He sat out last season and stayed with the program, despite coming in under the previous coaching staff. He is expected to be one of the top targets for quarterback Skylar Thompson this fall.
Rison tweeted out on Saturday he had done nothing wrong.
This will be my only response. I will continue to be myself…a man of God, as well as a great student-athlete at this university. I have done nothing wrong. Proverbs 2:11— Hunter Rison (@hunterrison) April 20, 2019
Last week I was in Manhattan for Kansas State’s spring scrimmage and mentioned Rison in my three takeaways from the afternoon.
