FORT WORTH, TX - SEPTEMBER 2: Travis Hunter #12 of the Colorado Buffaloes dives for a pass against the TCU Horned Frogs during the first half at Amon G. Carter Stadium on September 2, 2023 in Fort Worth, Texas.

Travis Hunter was the nation’s top-ranked recruit in the class of 2022. He played his high school football at Collins Hill High School in Suwanee, Georgia.  He was a two-way star at wide receiver and cornerback.  Hunter was named the 2021 Gatorade National Player of the Year and the Maxwell Football Club’s National Offensive Player of the Year.

Hunter originally committed to FSU in March 2020.  He would go on to shock the college football world, flipping his commitment to Jackson State University in December 2021. Hunter’s decision was a major coup for Jackson State head coach Deion Sanders, who was trying to build a powerhouse program at the HBCU. Hunter committed to Jackson State University in December 2021, becoming the highest-ranked prospect to ever commit to an HBCU or FCS program (NIL Deals aren’t just for the big schools). He was named a finalist for the Jerry Rice Award, given to the top freshman player in FCS football.

Hunter transferred to Colorado in the offseason, following Coach Prime. In his game against then 17 Ranked TCU, Hunter posted 11 receptions for 119 yards on offense and one of the wildest red zone interceptions you will see all year.


So, is Travis Hunter the best college football player in the country?

It’s still early in his career, but he has all the tools to be great. He is a physical specimen with elite speed and athleticism. He is also a gifted athlete with great instincts and ball skills.

Travis Hunter has the potential to be a dominant force on both offense and defense. Most players would be exhausted after a game of just playing on one side of the ball, but Hunter looks like he’s ready for more after playing both sides. He could be a Heisman Trophy contender for either cornerback or wide receiver. Only time will tell if he reaches his full potential, but he has all the makings of a special player. What is for certain is that FSU fans aren’t happy about losing this guy!

These Are The Top 10 Party Schools In Florida; Ranked

School is in full swing for the 2023-2024 school year, and so is the football season, the Greek life and the college partying.  Which schools are the top party schools in Florida?

Of course the parents of freshman who were just dropped off a few weeks ago are cringing as they read this.  No doubt hoping that as they scroll they won’t see their child’s school listed as one of the top party schools in Florida.

The folks over at Niche recently released this year’s list of 2023 – 2024 party schools in the Sunshine State.


The Top Party Schools ranking is based on student reviews and nightlife statistics. There are five factors that are considered when making the list.

  1. Student Surveys On Party Scene, 70%
  2. Access To Bars, 10%
  3. Athletics Grade. 7.5%
  4. Greek Life Grade, 7.5%
  5. Access To Restaurants, 5%

Student opinions obviously go a long way with these rankings.  I mean, 70% of the grades coming from student surveys?!  Wow, that’s basically the deciding factor here.

Seemingly absent from the top of the list are a few larger universities from the southern part of the state, including FGCU (#17).  I was surprised not to see the University of South Florida (#12) in Tampa and Florida Atlantic University (#16) over in Boca Raton, too.

With that said, there were a few surprises at the top of the list.  Several smaller schools have cracked into the top 10 on this year’s list of party schools in Florida.
