“If It’s Not A Fit, I’m Not Going” | Jackson State Star Travis Hunter Enters Transfer Portal And Shocks Deion Sanders With This Announcement

Travis Hunter, the 2022 No. 1 ranked prospect, has entered the transfer portal after one season at Jackson State.

Where Is Travis Hunter Transferring To?

Hunter’s decision to transfer comes as no surprise, as it was expected since Deion Sanders made the announcement that he was taking the head coach position at Colorado. But to hear the talented wide receiver/cornerback say he doesn’t know if he’ll join Sanders in Boulder does come as a bit of a surprise.

In a video Hunter posted to YouTube late Sunday night, the former star at Suwanee, Georgia’s Collins Hill High School had this to say:

“Yes, I have entered the transfer portal. And in don’t know what I’m going to do next. I just know I’m going to look for a new home and take my time and weigh my options out.”

“Everybody wants me to follow Coach Prime,” Hunter added. “I want to follow Coach Prime, too, but I need to know it’s a fit for me. If it’s a fit for me, I’ll go. If it’s not a fit for me, I’m not going. I want everybody to know that.”

Hunter is doing the right thing, just as Coach Prime did what was best for him. Hunter is going to take his time and make sure he chooses the right situation to continue his collegiate career. While many believe he’ll still end up at Colorado, they’ll be no shortage of suitors for the multi-talented speedster.

College Teams Lining Up For Travis Hunter 

Hunter was ranked the No. 1 player in the class of 2022, and was originally committed to his dream school, Florida State, which happens to be Sanders’ alma mater. Coach Prime shook up the college football world when he flipped Hunter during last December’s early signing period.

That move made Coach Prime, enemy No. 1 for many college coaches. For an HBCU to land the nation’s top recruit is unheard of, but somehow Prime pulled it off. Prior to that decision, Hunter had 17 offers from Power Five forces such as Alabama, Georgia, Florida, Clemson, Michigan, Oklahoma, Tennessee, Texas and others.

Travis Hunter Chose Jackson State Because Of Deion Sanders

Choosing Jackson State was all about Coach Prime and Hunter, a cornerback, wanting to learn from the greatest to play the cornerback position. Hunter bought into what Coach Prime was selling and made history by attending the small HBCU. Which makes you believe he’s going to end up in Colorado when it’s all said and done.

Deion Sanders has said he expects Hunter to be at Colorado, but in this age of big money NIL deals, Hunter owes it to himself and his family to listen entertain other Power 5 “offers.”

Wide receiver Kevin Coleman, Jackson State’s other 2022 top-50 recruit, however, has decided to stay at Jackson State.

Travis Hunter’s As Advertised

Despite battling lingering injuries from high school, Hunter was electric every time he stepped on the gridiron. On defense, teams wouldn’t even look his way as he covered the top wideout from each team weekly. On offense, he displayed that elite game changing-speed and ball skills.

For the season, he tallied 18 receptions for 188 yards and four touchdowns. Two of those scores came in the Celebration Bowl loss, with one coming on the final play of regulation to force overtime.

On defense he shined, totaling 20 tackles, 10 passes defensed and two interceptions.

With two-way skills like that, he’ll have no shortage of suitors looking to add him to their roster. Per reports, Miami and Georgia didn’t waste any time reaching out.
