TRAVIS Hunter is in the right hands if he wants to realize his NFL potential.
Hunter, a five-star recruit from Georgia’s Collins Hill High School, stunned the college football world when he signed to Jackson State in 2022.
The star cornerback and wide receiver joined FCS to work with then-head coach and NFL Hall of Famer Deion Sanders (aka Primetime).
After an impressive debut season with Jackson State, which included ten broken passes and two cornerback interceptions and 188 yards and four touchdowns as receiver, Hunter is on the move again.
After Sanders announced his transfer to the University of Colorado, Hunter quickly followed the legend to the Pac-12.
On his YouTube channel, Hunter stated, “I made a commitment to Coach Prime at Jackson State while he was there and I want to honor my commitment and stay with him.”
“I have to stay with my buddy.”
And it’s no surprise that Sanders and Hunter wanted to get back together, given Primetime’s unabashed belief in the young man’s abilities.
Speaking to Hall of Famer Shannon Sharpe on his podcast Club Shay Shay, he said: “Trav has a desire within him that is insatiable.
“He has a work ethic that is second to none and he is not afraid of the moment. Many people are afraid of the moment. They say they want that skirt, but then you don’t win. If (Hunter) calls for it, he’ll win.”
And Sanders isn’t the only NFL Hall of Famer Hunter will be working with in the 2022-23 season, having signed a NIL (name, likeness and likeness) deal with Michael Strahan’s company SMAC Entertainment, according to Forbes.
Hunter is the first Strahan brand ambassador and will reportedly represent several of his companies.
This includes an “expansion of made-to-measure and sportswear lines”.
A regular host of Good Morning America, Strahan can be found on Fox Sports, where he serves as an NFL analyst, and on ABC as the host of The $100,000 Pyramid, among other one-off appearances.
Strahan, 50, has also ventured into business with a clothing line at Mens Warehouse, a skincare line called Michael Strahan’s Daily Defense, and a clothing line at JC Penney.
But before he became the television personality he is known for today, Strahan was a cornerstone of the New York Giants’ defense.
Now both Strahan and Sanders will look to steer Hunter in the right direction as he steers towards a hugely promising NFL career for the two-threat youngster.
