Riser grabs in-state offer

Houston Touchdown Club nominee Chris Riser received his first offer this week from Southern Methodist University.
Riser (5-foot-8, 170 pounds) of North Shore has been an integral part of the Mustang offense for three seasons and has returned kicks for two years.
"He's probably the best all-round receiver we've had here," North Shore coach David Aymond said. "He can catch anything and has good speed, but he's also a tremendous blocker downfield and that sometimes gets overlooked."
Riser caught 40 passes in the regular season for 634 yards, and rose to the occasion in the playoffs. He caught two clutch touchdowns against Westfield and one against Pearland.
The dependable hands man also brings his talents to the baseball diamond where he has been an all-district selection for two years. He plans on just focusing on football after his high school days come to an end.
Memphis, Houston and Louisiana Tech are also recruiting Riser.
