H.S. Scouting Summary

The rare prospect with five-star ability on both sides of the ball as a cornerback and wide receiver. The most impactful non-quarterback in high school football as a junior and senior. Also among the best players we've ever seen on the 7-on-7 circuit. Possesses transcendent ball skills with the ability to high-point and make catches in traffic at an alarmingly high rate. A highly instinctual ballhawk at cornerback with the ability to read quarterbacks and receivers and jump routes. A high volume target at receiver who is capable of winning at all levels with route-running quickness and savvy to go with the elite ball skills. Also a fierce competitor who elevates the play of teammates. Led his team to its first state title as a senior. Will go down as one of the best high school football players in Georgia history.

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.

Travis Hunter evaluation at Under Armour All-America Game
Charles Power
All American Practice

+ He’s ranked as an athlete, but Jackson State signee Travis Hunter (No. 2) primarily worked as a corner at Under Armour. Hunter took things relatively easy over the course of the week and is still nursing an ankle injury from his senior season. Hunter views himself as a cornerback first and certainly has the ability to be a great player there. With that said, I’ve been of the belief his highest upside is at receiver. What we saw at Under Armour confirmed that thought. Hunter has elite and perhaps transcendent ball skills. Along with A.J. Green, Hunter’s ball skills are the best I’ve seen from a high school prospect. That ability is maximized at receiver while any perceived questions about him as a prospect (slight build, lack of verified long speed) are minimized relative to corner. Make no mistake, Hunter was among the better corners at Under Armour, but he was not flawless. TCU signee Jordan Hudson got behind him twice during the game and he got caught flat-footed a few times in practice.

Travis Hunter ends career with a state title
Charles Power
Game

Travis Hunter ended his illustrious high school career with a state championship, leading his Collins Hill team to a 24-8 win over Milton in Georgia's 7A state championship. Hunter took over the game in the third quarter with a few long catches, a short touchdown and a forced fumble. He finished the game with 10 catches for 153 yards and touchdown in addition to several tackles and the forced fumble. Hunter is as good of a high school player that we've seen in a few years and will go down as an all-time great prep star in the state of Georgia.
