Today is the early national signing day for high school athletes all around the country, and college coaches are getting a glimpse of what their team will look like for years to come.

Days like today are usually dominated by the power five conferences in College Football (SEC, Big 10, Big 12, Pac 12, ACC), but this year is setting up be a little different.

Jackson State coach and legendary NFL Cornerback Deion Sanders went on Barstool Sports’ College Football podcast and had an announcement to share with the public last night.

“Let me tell you guys this, signing day is tomorrow. I am going on record to tell you guys, we are going to shock the country. You heard it from me, we are going to shock the country,” said Deion Sanders on the podcast.

Sanders certainly did shock the country today, as the number 1 recruit in the country, Travis Hunter, decided to flip his commitment from Florida State to Jackson State today to become the first five-star high school football prospect to sign with an FCS team since ESPN started its rankings in 2006.

Hunter had been committed to Florida State since March of 2020. This change of heart absolutely shook the college sports landscape, and many media members took to social media to express their surprise with the decision.

It can not be understated how big of a role that Barstool Sports had in the move that Sanders made in getting Hunter to commit. Barstool Sports has long been a supporter of Deion Sanders, and made a huge NIL deal to Hunter along with Penn National Gaming, their partner that is rumored to be in the millions.

It is shocking that Sanders has not gotten an offer to coach at a power 5 conference on name alone yet, and bigger conference teams may be kicking themselves following this commitment by Hunter.
