The Kansas State wide receiver corps took a hit on Tuesday night.

Former Michigan State transfer Hunter Rison took to Twitter on Tuesday to announce his transfer from the Wildcats' program.

Rison transferred to Kansas State from Michigan State, but ran into legal troubles earlier this spring.

Kansas State suspended wide receiver Hunter Rison indefinitely after he was arrested on a domestic abuse charge. No criminal charges were filed against Rison, but he remained suspended from the team until his decision to transfer.

"Thank you to the K-State staff for allowing me to be a part of this family. It has been mutually decided that it's best I find a new school. I've entered my name into the NCAA transfer portal. Best of luck to K-State in the upcoming season!" Rison said on Tuesday night.

In his freshman season with the Spartans, Rison racked up 224 yards on 19 receptions this season while fighting for the No. 4 wide receiver spot.

The son of former first-round pick and five-time Pro Bowl wide receive Andre Rison, Hunter sat out the 2018 season following his transfer to Kansas State.

He emerged as a potential starter for the Wildcats, but it looks like he'll have to finish his career elsewhere.
