Four-star wide receiver Hunter Rison impressed in a losing performance Thursday night, when his Ann Arbor Skyline team traveled to Ohio to play Shaker Heights.
The Michigan State caught two touchdown passes on the evening, and might have had even better numbers but his team struggled to get him the ball consistently.
There were several instances where Rison beat his man or even when double-teamed, but either his line couldn't protect the passer or the quarterback failed to get him the football.
EVALUATION: Think Scout is on the money with Rison's ranking, and he's a solid four-star receiver. While not a 4.4 blazer that can jump over the moon, Rison is fast enough and more than athletic enough to play at the highest level of college football. What he does exceptionally well is run great routes, and he is really quick getting in and out of his breaks. Rison has a strong body and is willing to go over the middle and take hits. He is extremely competitive and really played this game hard. He was frustrated at not getting the football, but never let it affect his effort. This is a solid pickup for the Spartans, and Rison just might be able to play early in East Lansing.
