We all knew a day like this would come when Deion Sanders gets a major recruit, but to get the #1 rated 5-star DB/ATH in the country in just your second recruiting class is huge. This kid Travis Hunter isn’t your normal recruit. This kid is rated 5-Star across the board for many reasons. He has natural instincts for the game and the position. He can play anywhere on the field. He is the DOG that Deion Sanders was talking about.
Travis hunter was expected to be the cornerstone to the FSU 2022 recruiting class and head coach Mike Norvell’s greatest pick-up for the Seminoles. Travis is an unbelievable talent that will be the backend to Jackson State secondary for years to come.
The news of his commitment today was like an 7.9 earthquake felt around college football. The Georgia prospect had been committed to FSU since March of 2020 and held to his commitment throughout recruiting cycle. Most believed he would flip to Georgia because of how hard they were recruiting him.
FSU had nothing to worry about until Travis took a visit to Jackson State in November. To most the visit wasn’t of much concern because Travis is the #1 player in the country and Jackson State is an FCS program. But if there is a will there’s a way.
What a power move by Travis Hunter and JSU.
