WR/CB Travis Hunter of Colorado tweeted huge allegations against the Florida State coaching staff, saying they tried to rig his transfer.
Travis Hunter has beef with Florida. Lots of it, it seems.
The Colorado transfer, who left Jackson State to pursue Deion Sanders to Boulder, got into a Twitter altercation with five-star wide receiver Hykeem Williams, a recent FSU signing.
Williams took a swing at Hunter on Instagram Live before signing his letter of intent.
“There is no Travis Hunter here. Williams said, pointing to Hunter throwing caps off the table, including one from FSU, where he was committed, before announcing his decision to join Jackson State.
When On3 put Williams’ words on a graphic, Hunter tweeted, “It can’t be me” while crying with a laughing emoji.
“You’re right I’m solid,” Williams responded.
“They will take me on you now,” Hunter replied. “You’d better ask your coach.”
When another Twitter user responded about Sanders trying to get Williams to Colorado, Hunter came back with the big accusation: tampering.
Travis Hunter claims Florida State tampered with his transfer
“FSU called me before I hit the gate,” Hunter tweeted.
That’s a major claim but it also looks like it’s toothless.
College football coaches love to whine about frivolity. It is normal for players to also reject the accusation due to leverage.
The chances of the NCAA doing anything about it are low. Especially since an investigation of tampering by the State of Florida would open all other programs to similar investigations. Odds are, most coaches don’t want that.
Williams will make his way in Florida. Hunter will start over in Colorado. And the chances of them meeting on the field are low unless the CFB gods give everyone a Florida State vs. Colorado game in the near future.
