Travis Hunter was the No. 1 overall player in the 2022 recruiting class, so many were surprised when he committed to Jackson State, an FCS program led by Deion Sanders.

There were rumors of a massive NIL deal luring Hunter to Jackson, but both the school and Hunter have repeatedly denied those claims.

On Thursday morning, Hunter took to Twitter to respond to that claim once again:

Sanders has promised a response to Saban’s comments, even going as far as to release a hype video at 2 in the morning on Thursday:

Stay tuned, folks! Saban’s comments may have just incited a college football war.
