As we near Christmas and the semifinals of the College Football Playoff and the national title game,...
Both are elevating their playing careers to the FBS level.
College football fans all around the nation have been guessing at what time Travis Hunter would enter the transfer portal to join Deion Sanders at Colorado since Sanders made his decision in early December.
Hunter and many other athletes on Jackson State's roster, including quarterback Shedeur Sanders, decided to investigate the gateway public after the school's weekend defeat to North Carolina Central University. On Wednesday, Hunter hinted that he would announce his engagement on YouTube after he received 100,000 views.
The top 2022 class prospect and former Florida State commit announced his decision to transfer to Boulder in a video posted shortly after he reached the milestone. Upon Sanders' and Hunter's promotion to the FBS level, they will reconnect in Colorado.
Ultimately, I want to continue with Coach Prime because I made a promise to him when he was at Jackson State. Hunter said on YouTube, "He's going to develop me as he said he was going to develop me." As a result of my time at Jackson State University studying under him, I have decided to continue working with him.
Many Jackson State players were expected to sign with the Buffaloes, so the move wasn't shocking.
The Jackson State University freshman from Georgia was a versatile player who contributed on both offense and defense. Though injuries plagued him, he still managed to rack up 20 tackles, ten pass deflections, and two interceptions on defense while catching 18 catches for 188 yards and four touchdowns on offense.
In his three seasons as head coach, Sanders helped the Tigers to a 27-6 overall record and a 23-3 record during that span. Nonetheless, he was unsuccessful in leading Jackson State to a win in either of its playoff games in the Celebration Bowl, with the team losing to South Carolina State and North Carolina
