Strahan, who is also a media personality and sports commentator announced the partnership on his brand’s Twitter account.

This is not Hunter’s first NIL agreement. The college freshman signed with Greenwood, which is a new digital banking platform for Blacks and Latinos. The company announced they struck a multi-year partnership with Hunter earlier this summer.

According to Forbes, Strahan, in an email wrote, “Travis Hunter is a game-changer on and off the football field,” Strahan said via email. “This young man had the opportunity to select any school in the country but chose Jackson State University, an HBCU. His decision demonstrates his character, his vision and his confidence. He is also a great teammate.

“These qualities resonate with me and my brand. I admire this young man and look forward to watching his continued growth.”

The highly sought-after cornerback has agreed to be the brand’s first ambassador. Future plans have Hunter as the face of many of the Michael Strahan brand efforts. Fashion statements will be made with the college football player as the brand continues to expand its tailored and sportswear clothing lines. You can expect to see Hunter in marketing efforts across print, digital and social media platforms.

The admiration for Strahan is evident from the statement Hunter made regarding the partnership.

“It means a lot,” Hunter said. “It really inspires me to do more of the things he’s doing for his brand and his community. … He’s really at the top of what he does. He’s one of the top people you want to work with. He can teach you a lot about what he does.”

The 19-year-old freshman became the first five-star high school prospect to sign with a Football Championship Subdivision (FCS) football program. He was also the highest-ranked recruit to commit to an HBCU.
