Travis Hunter, star recruit who transferred to Colorado, alleges tampering by ACC program
Travis Hunter drew headlines a year ago when the 5-star cornerback recruit flipped from Florida State to Jackson State and created attention for Deion Sanders.
Now that Sanders has taken the job at Colorado, and Hunter transferred with him, FSU is in the news again. The transfer was expected, but that didn’t prevent some other teams from trying to land Hunter again.
“FSU called before I hit the portal,” Hunter said, alleging tampering by the Seminoles.

“I committed to Coach Prime at Jackson State when he was there, and I want to honor my commitment and stay with him,” Hunter said in his announcement on YouTube. “I’ve got to stay with my dawg.”
Tampering has become an issue across college football, as multiple ACC coaches, from Pitt’s Pat Narduzzi and North Carolina’s Mack Brown, have alleged tampering with UNC QB Drake Maye. Narduzzi even went as far as to say multiple other programs offered Maye $5 million to transfer, while Brown wouldn’t speak to details like that.
