Oh, you can tell it’s July. There was literally nothing worth talking about yesterday morning, and today all we have is new information about an #OldMeme.
A couple of weeks ago, Hunter Rison announced on Twitter that he was transferring from Kansas State after his arrest and subsequent civil suit stemming from a domestic altercation back in April. That incident resulted in an indefinite suspension by Chris Klieman.
Yesterday, the wide receiver announced his next destination: Fullerton College, a California JUCO which was stripped of all its wins last year and a 2017 national championship because they are dirty rotten cheaters or some such.
I appreciate everyone that has reached out to me during this process. I will be attending Fullerton CC to play for the Hornets this upcoming fall semester. #BounceBack @FullColl_FB @MrGriffin22 @coachphilaustin pic.twitter.com/8ZrlL4gBzB— Hunter Rison (@hunterrison) June 30, 2019
The decision was, per the June 18 tweet from Rison, mutual; this probably comes as no surprise. Rison was reportedly upset with the decision to suspend him, and Klieman apparently has no room for such shenanigans on his roster. It’s another blow to a receiving corps which already lost Isaiah Zuber to transfer, but given the state of things it’s likely Rison wasn’t playing in September anyway.
K-State is now in third place in the 2020 Big 12 recruiting rankings, reports Alex Halstead of Cyclone Alert, the Iowa State 247 site. Halstead also points out the bad part of that: by average rating, K-State is actually only in eighth.
Yesterday marked 62 days left before the season begins, which means BracketCat got to dive into senior offensive tackle Tyler Mitchell, who’s getting lots of attention from all the right places because, well, he’s a senior starter on the K-State offensive line, duh.
Jen Reiss of Salt Lake City TV station KSL previews the NBA Summer League festivities at Vivint Smart Home Arena, which begin today and end Wednesday with each team playing twice a day. The summer league squads for Memphis, San Antonio, and Cleveland will be there along with the host Jazz, and Reiss suggests that if Dean Wade puts on a good show, he may well end up in Cleveland for the long run.
