Personal Life

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.

2020 Draft: Rnd 1 Pick 22
Travis Hunter is the only prospect worthy of two player comparisons. The Jackson State signee is a legitimate two-way prospect at corner and receiver. At receiver, Hunter’s considerable catch radius and shifty movements within the route remind us the most of Jefferson. Hunter will get comparisons to DeVonta Smith due to their similar dimensions, but Smith had extensive verified track speed, while Hunter does not. At corner, we like the Trevon Diggs comparison for a few reasons. Diggs began his career at Alabama as a wide receiver before converting to corner. Similar to Diggs, Hunter is at his best when he can sit back, read the quarterback and use his instincts, long arms and elite ball skills to make plays on the ball. Both are best fit in defenses that allow them to take chances and play the traditional Seattle Seahawks style coverage rather than being on a pure island in man-to-man downfield coverage.
