After reports surfaced last weekend that Kansas State’s Hunter Rison was arrested on domestic violence allegations, a court date has been set for the wide receiver.
Rison will appear in Riley County District Court on May 1st at 11 a.m.
He was arrested by the Riley County Police Department last Friday at 1:56 p.m. in the 2200 block of College Avenue. Rison was charged with one count of domestic battery/knowing or reckless bodily harm to family/person in dating relationship. Rison is free on $1,000 bond.
Rison has been with the Wildcats program since 2018 when he transferred in from Michigan State where he 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.
The wide receiver is currently on an indefinite suspension after head coach Chris Klieman said Rison had violated “team and department policy”.
In a tweet last weekend Rison responded with the following, “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.”
