Hunter Rison officially announced on Tuesday that he will be transferring from Michigan State.
Rison’s father, Andre, first broke the news on The Drive with Jack on 92.1 FM in Lansing, Mich. on Monday, but the wide receiver made his formal announcement on Twitter. The tweet includes a message from Rison as well as a picture of a letter from Michigan State which grants other programs permission to contact Rison.
Here is the tweet:

Here is what Rison wrote in his message:
“To Spartan Nation, I thank you. The opportunity you gave me to live out a life-long dream will forever be dear to me and my family. The relationships formed within this past year will last me a lifetime. It was an honor and privilege to put on the green and white and be apart of such an amazing season. I’ve decided to transfer from MSU in order to better myself and accomplish my goals on the field as well as in the classroom. Thank you.”
In 12 games with the Spartans in the 2017 season, Hunter made 19 catches for 224 yards and no touchdowns.
It is still unknown which school Rison will transfer to, but when he does transfer, he will have to redshirt for a season before he can play again.
