Deion Sanders turned the college football recruiting world on its head by flipping No. 1 2022 recruit Travis Hunter from Florida State to Jackson State.
The reaction on social media has ranged from complete shock to extreme joy.
Here is what Twitter is saying about the landmark commitment:
Was just on the phone with an FBS head coach a bit ago who asked me when Travis Hunter was going to announce that he was going to play for Deion Sanders and an HBCU. Next words out of his mouth: “This will be a game-changer.”

Travis Hunter to #JacksonState is the start of players realizing it doesn’t matter where you go, what the “tradition” is, or where guys have gone before
It’s about where YOU can be at your best, be appreciated and important and have real advocates for YOU
Be like Travis Hunter.

Whoever doubted that @DeionSanders wouldn’t make a difference, look at what he has done and is doing for those young people at Jackson State, that football program, the university, the community and HBCU athletics. Keep making lives better Prime!
