Jackson State Tigers
As a Recruit
Travis Hunter idolized Deion Sanders growing up. Hunter models his game and the way he carries himself both on and off the field much in the same way Prime Time did when he starred at Florida State and in the NFL. “I bring a whole lot of intensity and talent,” Hunter said. “I want to be the next Deion Sanders. And I’m going to live up to it.” Much like Sanders, Hunter is a two-sport star. However, instead of baseball, Hunter excels in football and as star point guard for the Collins Hill basketball team. Hunter is coached in football at Collins Hill by Lenny Gregory, who started 39 straight games as a defensive lineman at BYU. While at BYU, Gregory was a two-time all-WAC selection. Hunter has two siblings, Trayvis and Ashley.
