College Footballer Travis Hunter, 20, Surprises Mom With Lavish Home

Travis Hunter, a University of Colorado standout, surprised his mother by gifting her a new home in Savannah, Georgia. Hunter released a sweet video on YouTube, walking his fans through a five-bedroom, 2.5-bathroom home he bought for his mother.

Hunter surprised his mother by convincing her to believe they were looking at a house, only to realize he had bought it for her. The wonderful situation unfolded as his mother read a note aloud and discovered her son had actually bought her the house, resulting in a happy party with confetti.

Despite being a top prospect nationally, Hunter chose to play for FCS Jackson State after succeeding in high school near Atlanta, according to Bleacher Report.

Hunter, a versatile dual role player, was recruited by Deion Sanders, a pro Hall of Famer who previously played cornerback and wideout at Florida State.Hunter accompanied Sanders to the University of Colorado after he changed professions at Jackson State.

Hunter excelled in his first season at Colorado, with 57 receptions for 721 yards and five touchdowns. He also made substantial contributions on defense, with 22 tackles, three interceptions, and five passes defended in nine games.

According to On3, Hunter’s market worth in name, image, and likeness (NIL) is $2.4 million, making him the sixth most valuable collegiate athlete. Only Colorado superstar teammate Shedeur Sanders and Texas quarterback Arch Manning head this list of football players.

With NIL rules permitting collegiate athletes to earn money from endorsement deals, they now have the ability to use their celebrity for financial advantage, which was previously only available to professional athletes.

Hunter, who is predicted to be a top prospect in the 2025 NFL draft, is already a star on and off the field, with the ability to provide for his family financially.

This transition follows the Supreme Court’s decision allowing student-athletes to profit from their NIL, which marked a dramatic divergence from previous NCAA restrictions.
