Kansas State Wildcats wide receiver Hunter Rison was arrested on Friday at approx. 1:56 pm in the 2200 block of College Avenue. He is charged with one count of domestic battery/knowing or reckless bodily to family/person in dating relationship.
He was released on $1,000 bond.
Chris Klieman, the team’s first-year head football coach, announced on Saturday that Rison is suspended indefinitely, according to The Mercury.
He said that Rison violated team and departmental policy. However, he did not mention his arrest.
“Our program will be one that is built on hard work and integrity and doing things the right way,” Klieman said in a release. “We have extremely high expectations for our players on and off the field.”
He transferred to Kansas State one year ago after starting his collegiate journey with the Michigan State Spartans. In 2017, he had 18 receptions for 223 yards in 12 games.
His best game came against the Notre Dame Fighting Irish when he had four receptions for 73 yards.
Rison sat out last season after transferring to Kansas State. He practiced in spring ball with the Wildcats before this incident.
“He has a world of ability, and I am excited to see, just like everybody else, when we reinstall all of this stuff when we get to August, how much retention everybody has so that they just play faster,” Klieman said of Rison, a third-year sophomore, on April 13. “It is sometimes difficult to tell how talented a young man is if they do not know what they are doing. Now they are starting to get the understanding of our schemes, offensively and defensively.
“They will continue to do that themselves with practices this spring and summer, but when we get into August and we reinstall it as coaches, I will look for really quantum leaps from a lot of guys.”
Rison is the son of Andre Rison, the former five-time Pro Bowler. His father was also a former first-round draft pick.
He said, according to The Mercury, he didn’t want to get ahead of himself.
“But I am really confident in this team and what we are doing,” he said. “We have a lot of confidence and the energy is great. I am just excited to see what comes.”
