I went to their summer camp as well, so we've had a really good relationship. Me and (offensive line) Coach (Derek) Frazier were just messaging back and forth through Facebook and I had been calling him every Saturday.
He has unofficial visits to check out Missouri, Oklahoma State, Tulsa, Stanford, Oregon and Oregon State this spring.
Risner ultimately wants to have a decision made before his senior year of high school so that he can just concentrate on playing football.
