It's not taking very long for former No. 1 recruit Travis Hunter to make a big impact at Deion Sanders' Jackson State program.

On Sunday, Jackson State held its annual spring game, and Hunter made his presence known right away, scoring two touchdowns.

"Travis Hunter making an immediate impact in Jackson State’s spring game," 247Sports tweeted on Sunday night.

Hunter, a five-star defensive back, could play both ways for Jackson State this year. It will be very fun to watch. "Kid is special!" one fan tweeted. "I told y’all he was playing both ways," another fan tweeted. "To be fair, Hunter’s immediate impact happened when ESPNU decided to air Jackson State’s spring game," another fan wrote on Twitter.

Jackson State's spring game aired on ESPNU - a huge step for HBCU programs.
