Deion Sanders and Jackson State University have officially changed the world of college football with the biggest shock in recruiting history.
Travis Hunter, the top-rated recruit in the 2022 class, officially flipped from Florida State and signed with Jackson State on Wednesday.
Hunter, a cornerback, had scholarship offers from every big-name school in the nation, and originally committed to FSU on March 3 of 2020, but is deciding to take his talent to the HBCU in Mississippi.
During his announcement, Hunter had hats from FSU, Georgia, and Auburn on the table. He picked up each hat, even put the Georgia and FSU hats on before tossing them aside and unzipping his jacket showing off a Jackson State t-shirt.

Nobody, other than Deion Sanders himself, saw this move coming early Wednesday morning. Rumors and reports quickly made waves on social media about an hour before he officially signed with the Tigers.
It’s a safe assumption Hunter secured quit the NIL deal to join Sanders at JSU, but details about that have not yet been reported.
College football fans were absolutely shocked by Hunter’s decision to flip from FSU to JSU:

Travis Hunter is a legend for that move alone. He could have went anywhere in the country but decided to go to an HBCU. I love that! I hope he has the greatest career of all time
