If you just rubbed your eyes to make sure you read that correctly, you absolutely did!
Before the start of the early signing period, Jackson State head coach Deion Sanders teased that he was going to pull of something historic. Speed forward to National signing day, and the Deion Sanders move he was teasing has been fully made as Sanders pulls away a 5-star defensive back from his alma mater, Florida State University.
The #2 recruit in the country, Travis Hunter (CB), flipped his commitment to FSU to Jackson State earlier today. On a Twitter post earlier today, Hunter said the following:
“It’s a dream that is hard to let go of, but sometimes we are called to step into a bigger future than the one we imagined for ourselves. For me, that future is the Jackson State University”

Reactions to the Move – Fans
Of course, along with any moves made in the world of sports, there is always a reaction that follows.
In this instance, many of the reactions were that of shock and surprise especially as no one saw it coming.
If Travis Hunter goes to Jackson State it will be the biggest surprise in the modern recruiting era.

However, for some others, the move was one that many questioned Sanders’ allegiance to his Alma Mater. In example, the below reaction from a fan via a Twitter Post.
My personal reaction is nothing but a giant kudos to coach Sanders. Being able to pull such a move for such a highly ranked recruit is definitely a shocker. Travis Hunter is a 6-foot-1, 165lbs. prospect from Collins High School in Suwanee, GA who had previously committed to FSU so imagine the inspiration Sanders must’ve given this young man to make such a bold move. Needless to say though, Hunter makes the move wanting to be a giant part of the future for Jackson State while also shedding light in the way for others to follow and recognize that Historically Black Colleges and Universities are definitely worth the consideration when decision time comes.
It is also worth to note this isn’t the first time Sanders has pulled ranked recruits. Sanders signed his son, Shedeur Sanders (QB) who was amongst those ranked by ESPN in the 300 recruit 2021 class.
