Travis Hunter to visit Florida State this weekend

The No. 1 player in the country is expected to be back in Tallahassee for the first time since September.

Florida State and Miami are set to face off in their annual rivalry game on Saturday afternoon. With this being a big matchup and the final home game of the season, the Seminoles are expecting a sizable number of recruits in the stands. That includes multiple prospects, such as defensive end Marvin Jones Jr and wide receiver Camden Brown, who will be taking official visits.

The one player that everyone has been asking about recently is No. 1 prospect Travis Hunter. The top player in the 2022 class has visited Tallahassee twice during the 2021 season but he hasn't returned since September. In the meantime, Hunter has been spotted in Athens twice and Georgia head coach Kirby Smart took a helicopter flight to one of his high school games.

It's clear that the Bulldogs are pushing hard to try and flip Hunter. That said, he's reaffirmed his commitment multiple times over the past few weeks. In the middle of October, Hunter spoke on ESPN about his pledge to Florida State.

"I felt like that was the right school for me and the right team that I wanted to be on since it's my dream school."

Last week, another defensive back commitment, Sam McCall posted a graphic to social media that featured him and Hunter. Both of them made it clear that they were ready to get to campus in January.
