Early Saturday morning, The Mercury, reported that Kansas State suspended wide receiver Hunter Rison indefinitely. Police arrested Rison, a former four-star recruit, on a domestic abuse charge.
New Kansas State head coach Chris Klieman – formerly of North Dakota State – confirmed the news in a short statement.
“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,” Klieman said.
Hours after the report first emerged, Rison himself addressed the alleged incident. The former Michigan State wide receiver suggests he “did 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,” Rison said on Twitter.
