The Tigers will bring in some much needed help at wide receiver this year, they signed four recruits with the ability to play receiver. One of the biggest additions was DeAndre Hopkins a 6’2” 194 lb. standout from Daniel High School.
DeAndre is working out with a personal trainer getting ready for the upcoming season.
“I am working on my speed, agility and trying to get stronger. I am doing the Clemson’s workout program so that I am ready to go when I get there,” said Hopkins.
It is no secret that Clemson has struggled to find consistent play at the receiver position and that is one of the main reason DeAndre ended up picking Clemson. “I picked Clemson because I knew there was a possibly to come in as a freshman and play. I know I got to work hard and show the coaches that I can play. I think I could have played in my first year at a lot of places, but I felt real good with the coaches and they made me feel good about Clemson,” said Hopkins.
DeAndre is arriving in Clemson June 28th for orientation, he will most likely major in business management and is rooming with Martavis Bryant, Joe Craig, and Bashaud Breeland.
What have the coaches been saying to him?
“They are just telling me to come in there with the right mindset, I have to want it, I have to come in and work hard right away,” replied Hopkins. DeAndre most important goal is to graduate but he has set some big football goals.
“My mom always says to set big goals. So I want to get 6 td’s in my first year. I want our team to be real successful; I want to win the ACC championship,” said Hopkins.
