A signing day flip is nothing new for those who follow recruiting, and seeing a top rated player leave a school he’s been committed to for months for a new suitor is par for the course on National Signing Day. But nobody could have expected what occured today in Suwanee, Georgia, as Travis Hunter, rated as the consensus top player in the Class of 2022, flipped his commitment from Florida State to Jackson State, become the first five star player in modern history to sign with a HBCU.

Hunter chose Jackson State over offers from literally every powerhouse program in the country, including Alabama, Georgia, Michigan, and Clemson. He was rated as the top player in the country regardless of position by both 247 and Rivals recruiting services. His addition to JSU’s class means the Tigers will be the only program in the state this recruiting cycle to sign a five star player.

Sanders spoke on the Barstool Sports Pro Football Show earlier this week, promising to “shock the country” on National Signing Day.

Here’s some national reaction to Hunter’s decision to play for Sanders and Jackson State.
