Former top-ranked prospect Travis Hunter to transfer from Jackson State

December 20, 2022


A year after shocking the college football world with his decision to play at Jackson State, former top-ranked recruit Travis Hunter announced he is entering the transfer portal.

Hunter’s decision comes weeks after his former coach Deion Sanders left Jackson State to take the job at Colorado.

While Sanders made it clear that he expects plenty of former Jackson State players to follow him to Colorado, Hunter did not yet commit to playing for the Buffaloes.

The five-star recruit revealed the decision to transfer on his personal YouTube channel, saying “I don’t know what I am going to do next.”

While Colorado is a possible landing spot for Hunter, Georgia, USC and Miami are reportedly also in the mix.

Hunter had originally committed to play at Florida State after coming out of high school in Georgia atop the 2022 recruiting class before shockingly decide to play for Sanders at Jackson State – a historically black college that plays on the FCS level.

He enjoyed a solid freshman season playing on both sides of the ball for a Tigers team that finished the season 12-1 with a 41-34 overtime loss to North Carolina Central in Saturday’s Celebration Bowl.

As a defensive back, Hunter had two interceptions, 10 pass breakups and a fumble recovery, while also hauling in 18 passes for 188 yards and four touchdowns while playing receiver.
