Former Michigan State receiver Hunter Rison will continue his football career at the junior college level after transferring from Kansas State. The ex-Spartan made his commitment announcement to Fullerton College on Sunday.
Rison, a member of Michigan State’s 2017 roster, recently decided to transfer out of Kansas State after he was suspended by new head coach Chris Kleiman, following an alleged domestic battery charge. Rison’s suspension was indefinite.
“I appreciate everyone that has reached out to me during this process,” Rison wrote on Twitter. “I will be attending Fullerton CC to play for the Hornets this upcoming fall semester.”

Last year, Rison did not participate in the Wildcats’ 2018 campaign due to NCAA transfer rules that forced him to sit out. He would’ve been eligible to be a full participant for Kansas State in 2019. Now, he’ll head to Fullerton College, in California for at least a semester before taking another look at potentially joining another FBS program.
In 2017, Rison was a significant contributor at receiver for Michigan State as a true freshman. He totaled 224 yards on 19 receptions while appearing in 12 games. His role was expected to increase with the Spartans the following season.
As a recruit, Rison was a four-star prospect and was ranked as one of the top 50 wide receivers of the class.
