ClutchPoints' Scotty White is in agreement with former Georgia QB Aaron Murray about two-way Colorado football star Travis Hunter being deserving of a 99 rating in the upcoming EA Sports College Football 25 video game.

"Murray has a point," White prefaced before saying, "Hunter was one of the most special players in college football last season for a reason, and he should be even better next year with another offseason under his belt and after spending more time with the Colorado coaching staff. There are few players that can make an impact on both offense and defense, and Hunter is one of the special few."

Murray said that Hunter is the only person in college football deserving of a 99 rating in the highly-anticipated EA Sports release; one 11 years and two different generations of Playstation, Nintendo, and Xbox.

“I think the only person to me that 100%, 100% this person deserves the ranking of 99: Travis Hunter, Colorado,” Murray said during a recent appearance on Snaps.

“He's a freak athlete. The best DB by far… Would be the top DB in the draft this year and he could play both ways. Probably play special teams too. So Travis Hunter my for sure lock. If there's going to be a 99 guy it's going to go to him.”

Hunter was joined by Shedeur Sanders and Coach Prime in a pitch by Barstool Sports' Big Tennessee for CU to take the torch from Denard Robinson using three different outreached hands.

"I don't know if EA would go with just one of these guys or a combination of two or all three, but in terms of current players and coaches, this group definitely has the most star power," the Barstool writer prefaced before saying, "In a year where there aren't that many returning stars in college football — and the ones that there are don't have a ton of name recognition or buzz — putting someone like Travis Hunter on the cover makes a ton of sense. And then if EA wants to lean into the entire Colorado angle, you could put Shedeur and Coach Prime on there, too."

Speculation will continue to go in Boulder's direction until a cover athlete is named. Perhaps there will be a cover art reveal at "Prime Weekend."
