Social media reacts to No. 1 2022 recruit Travis Hunter’s shocking commitment to Jackson State football, Deion Sanders

Travis Hunter is the No. 1 recruit in the United States in the 2022 class, per the 247Sports Composite.

And he has committed to Jackson State football.

Hunter decommitted from Florida State and committed to Jackson State on Wednesday, the first day of the early signing period. It is the most shocking news story of early National Signing Day and in recent college football recruiting history.

It is an unprecedented move for a blue-chip recruit, much less the top recruit in the country, to make a move to an FCS school out of high school. That Hunter signed with Jackson State, an HBCU, makes it that much more meaningful.

Chiney Ogwumike takes her next step in her media career with NBA Today

Ever since she started her broadcast career at ESPN, Chiney Ogwumike has been trying to go with the flow, taking advantage of whatever opportunities she could while still being a professional athlete.

Whether that was anchoring SportsCenter Africa or being a basketball analyst on the domestic version, producing the film “144” about the WNBA bubble or even hosting a daily radio show over the past year — the first Black woman to have that national platform on ESPN — Ogwumike hasn’t had any preconceived notions about where she wants to end up. As Ogwumike tells SB Nation, “the goal at ESPN was to be a sponge and soak up and learn”.

That path has given Ogwumike a diverse skill set. She can talk about any sport now even if her specialty is basketball — she’s proud of the fact that her football knowledge has grown to the point that she

What’s in a name? Social media reacts to Jaguars’ Josh Allen sacking, intercepting Bills’ Josh Allen

The Jacksonville Jaguars defense is keeping it surprisingly close against the high-voltage Buffalo Bills.

Josh Allen has played a big part in that.

That’s the Jaguars’ Josh Allen, not to be confused with the Bills’ Josh Allen.

The MVP contender has been kept in check all day, and a couple of second-half interceptions have allowed the Jags to hang around. His second pick of the day led to a Matthew Wright go-ahead field goal to make it 9-6.

On the receiving end of Josh Allen’s interception: Josh Allen.

What It’s Like To Do a Weeklong Media Deprivation Exercise

After recently leaving my job of nine years at a media outlet and moving across the country, I found myself seeking wisdom, guidance, and a general reset to how I approach life. So I decided to read The Artist’s Way: A Spiritual Path to Higher Creativity. The 1992 book by Julia Cameron functions as a 12-week self-guided course in “discovering and recovering your creative self.”

With more than four million copies sold and endorsements from the likes of Alicia Keys, productivity expert Tim Ferriss, and Eat Pray Love author Elizabeth Gilbert, I felt great about subscribing to its exercises that accompany each chapter. But, I found chapter four’s to be the most intensive, illuminating, and inspiring: “reading deprivation,” which, since the dawn of the internet, Cameron has updated to “media deprivation.” What it entails is no reading, movies, TV, podcasts, or social media. No content. Of any
