Michigan State legacy wide receiver pledge Hunter Rison talks about why it was good to step back from his Spartans pledge and more.

Spartan Digest spoke one-on-one with future Michigan State wide receiver Hunter Rison about his decision to step away from his Spartans pledge only to come back after exploring other options. We also talk about Mark Dantonio and what role his father played in his decision.


The Michigan State Spartans didn't have to look too far away when looking for a wide receiver in the 2017 recruiting class.  Legacy prospect Hunter Rison was known within the program and an early offer and pledge was a no brainier.

However, more schools soon took notice and expressed their interest putting some uncertainty in the young Rison's mind.

Taking a step back from his Spartans pledge, Rison explored his other options but in the end came back to MSU with his pledge in April.

Rison spoke with Spartan Digest about his mindset during his recruitment along with the role his famous father Andre Rison played and what Mark Dantonio is really all about.
