Rising prospect ready to showcase talent at Clemson

Major offers have started to come for Roswell (Ga.) 2019 athlete Tyron Hopper recently.

After receiving his first offer from South Carolina in March, Hopper has since hauled in offers from Alabama, Mississippi State, Tennessee and Wake Forest among others.

“I’m really enjoying the process, and it’s off to a great start,” Hopper told The Clemson Insider, “so I’m really excited that I’ve been able to receive these blessings going into my junior year of high school.”

Clemson is one of a number of other schools showing interest, and Hopper was invited to participate in the Dabo Swinney Camp next month.

“The coaches want me to come to the camp,” Hopper said. “So I just want to go and compete.”

Hopper is listed as a safety, cornerback or athlete by the major recruiting services.

The 6-foot-2, 190-pound prospect has the versatility to play both positions, and he is hoping to showcase his ability at Clemson.

“I want to show them what I can do, my ball skills, cover skills and my love for the game,” Hopper said.

Hopper transferred to Roswell High this year from Gaffney High in Gaffney, S.C.

Having grown up in the Palmetto State, Hopper would be especially excited if he earns an offer from the Tigers moving forward.

“It would mean a lot to me because my family is huge Clemson fans and they really love the program,” he said, “and it’s close to home.”

Hopper is also getting interest from schools such as Auburn, Florida, Georgia, North Carolina, N.C. State and Virginia Tech. He said he hopes to visit Alabama, Auburn, Georgia, Mississippi State, South Carolina and Tennessee this summer, as well.
