  05/21/22 - Travis HunterFr/2026, Jackson State, 6-1, 175 (DS#1 CB) + More +

  During a Wednesday night event in Birmingham, Saban claimed Jackson State "paid a guy a million dollars last year that was a really good Division I player to come to school," and that, "it was in the paper and they bragged about it. Nobody did anything about it." Saban was assumed to be referring to 247 Sports' top-rated prospect in the 2022 class, five-star cornerback Travis Hunter, who shocked the college football world when he flipped his commitment from Florida State to Jackson State last December. Hunter in a tweet Thursday questioned how he was paid a million dollars if his mother remains in a three-bedroom house with five children.

Sanders, the former NFL star, followed up by tweeting that he does not even make a million dollars as Jackson State's coach. "I don't make a million. Travis ain't built like that. Travis ain't chasing a dollar. Travis is chasing greatness. Travis and his family don't get down like that," Sanders said. "They never came to us in search of the bag. They're not built like that. This kid wants to be great. "He wants my hands on him. He wants me to mold him. He wants me to be his navigational system through life. He wants to be that dude." Andscape reported, citing a source, that Hunter has two current NIL deals and two pending, and that the deals are worth less than $250,000. - Birmingham News

  12/20/21 - Keveon MullinsrJr/2024, Jackson State, 6-2, 242 (DS#5 FB) + More +

  South Carolina is losing another athlete to the transfer portal. Less than an hour after quarterback Jason Brown announced his intention to transfer from USC, a school spokesperson confirmed that tight end Keveon Mullins has entered his name into the transfer portal. David Cloninger of the Post and Courier first reported the news. Mullins was a four-star prospect in the class of 2019 out of Memphis, Tennessee. He was rated the No. 315 player in the class and the No. 18 athlete. The former Whitehaven High School standout had yet to really break into South Carolina's rotation at tight end since arriving in Columbia, but had shown flashes after shifting from receiver to tight end in the spring of 2020. Mullins recorded three catches for 110 yards last season. However, he did not record a single catch this year and appeared in just one game for the Gamecocks. - Rock Hill Herald

  Isaiah Bolden returned a kick-off 91 yards and James Houston IV picked off a pass in the backfield and returned it five yards for a score as Jackson State broke open a tight game in the third quarter to beat Prairie View A&M 27-10, and win its first Southwestern Athletic Conference championship in 13 years Saturday. The Tigers (11-1) also wrapped up the school's first 11-win season. Jackson State's defense forced four turnovers from Prairie View quarterback Jawon Pass, picking off three passes and forcing a third-quarter fumble. The graduate transfer from Louisville, who threw for just shy of 2,000 yards, was held to just 6 of 19 for 80 yards. Prairie View scored first. Ty Holden took a pitch from Pass, pulled up and lobbed a pass to a wide-open Jailon Howard for a 35-yard touchdown with 3:25 left in the first quarter.

Jackson State answered with a six-play, 65-yard drive capped by a 16-yard pass to Malachi Wideman from Shedeur Sanders, the SWAC Freshman of the Year and son of coach Deion Sanders. Luis Reyes put the Panthers on top with a 37-yard field goal in the second quarter, but Prairie View did not score again. Bolden took the following kick-off, found a seam and raced 91-yards for the go-ahead touchdown and a 13-10 halftime lead. The Tigers forced a Pass fumble on Prairie View's first possession of the second half, and with the Panthers deep in their own territory, Houston penetrated into the backfield, tipping a swing pass, snatching it out of the air and returning it five yards for a touchdown midway through the third quarter. Jackson State put a bow on its SWAC title with 48-yard drive late in the third quarter capped by a five-yard run from Peytton Pickett, who finished with 107 rushing yards on 19 carries. With the SWAC title comes a berth in the 2021 Celebration Bowl in Atlanta Dec. 18. The Tigers will face Mid-Eastern Conference champion South Carolina State (6-5). - Jackson State/AP College Football
