Bloomington, IN— Here are three key newcomers who the Michigan State Spartans expect to contribute this season:

1. Hunter Rison, WR-

Both professional and college football fans should be familiar with the last name Rison. Hunter Risons’s father, Andre Rison, who starred at Michigan State, later had a stellar NFL career as he played for seven teams over 12 seasons at wide receiver.

Like his father, Hunter, will be a wide receiver at Michigan State. He was a four-star recruit and should find his way onto the field in 2017 pretty quickly since the Spartans are thin at the position. Although he is not a big receiver, at 5-foot-11, Rison has the ability to impact the game with his hands and speed.

2. Matt Dotson, TE-

The Spartans need to replace star tight end Josiah Price and that may have a good one in four-star recruit Matt Dotson. He has very good size, which should allow him to be a factor in both the passing and running game. He made 25 catches for 448 and six touchdowns during his senior season at Archbishop Moeller in Kenwood, Ohio.

3. Kevin Jarvis, OL-

Head coach Mark Dantonio’s Michigan State teams have been known as tough, hard-nosed, run-it-down-your-throat-to-set-up-the-pass-type offenses. In order to do that you need a great offensive line. As a 6-foot-5 335-pound guard, Kevin Jarvis could be a major piece to bring this unit back up to par.
