FSU football has arguably the best player in the 2022 recruiting class.
FSU football has one of the highest-rated players in the 2022 recruiting cycle committed in Georgia’s Travis Hunter Jr.
The five-star commit is considered the No. 4 player overall and No. 2 cornerback in the nation. Hunter Jr. committed to the Noles in March 2020, similar to another five-star defensive back a few years ago in Derwin James.
James committed to the Noles nearly three years before enrolling in the spring of 2015, and Hunter Jr. seems to be in the same mold.
However, the FSU football program is in a different place compared to when James committed. The Noles were already an elite program and eventually won its third national title in 2013.
The Noles of today need elite talent like Travis Hunter Jr. to help get back to the pinnacle of the sport. It makes sense for FSU football fans to be wary of a player committing to a program so early.
There are not many Derwin James type players out there willing to stick to a commitment for so long, but Hunter Jr. seems to fit the mold.
He reinforced the sentiment on Twitter Monday afternoon:
It’s not a if I’m locked in 🍢🍢

He can’t be any clearer than that. The young man is an exceptional talent who could join the program right now and immediately help the program on offense or defense.
Check out these numbers at one of the highest classifications in Georgia:

Hunter Jr. is vocal on Twitter and already recruiting hard and trying to get top talent in the nation to join him in Tallahassee.

That’s his high school teammate and four-star quarterback Sam Horn who’s also one of the top 100 players in the nation.

This 2022 recruiting class could be a game-changer for Mike Norvell and the staff. They already have two commits from two excellent players, and there are a few legacy blue-chip recruits that would be huge additions along with Hunter Jr.
Stay tuned, as things could get spooky in Tallahassee if Travis Hunter Jr. can surround himself with some of these other top players.
