    Hunter Rison committed to Michigan State, giving the Spartans their fourth commit of 2017.


    Mark Dantonio’s latest commit is one Spartans fans will be head over heels for because of two reasons: he’s a 4-star wide receiver, and his dad is a famous Spartan.

    Who doesn’t love legacies?

    Hunter Rison, son of Andre Rison, committed to Michigan State Friday in a message he tweeted out while he was visiting the campus. Judging by the date on the picture, it appears he decided to sit on the decision for a few days before going public with it.

    Rison is similar in size to his dad. Andre was 6-foot-1, 188 lbs while Hunter is 5-foot-11, 191 lbs.

    He’s the No. 37 wide receiver and No. 254 overall recruit in the 2017 class. He flashes great hands and body control in the air. Hunter is already a polished route runner, but that shouldn’t come as a surprise being the son of a former star receiver.

    Andre Rison finished with 146 receptions for 2,992 yards and 20 touchdowns at Michigan State. He ended up having a long, 13-year career after the Indianapolis Colts selected him at No. 22 overall in the 1989 NFL Draft.

    Let’s see if Hunter is up for the challenge of outdoing his old man.
