Hopkins: "It was amazing"


Clemson’s DeAndre Hopkins played in his first game as a Tiger.  The Tigers spread the ball around to a number of receivers on Saturday as they defeated North Texas 35-10.

“Yeah, that is the way we practice.  We have a lot of good depth.  With Jacoby leaving we spread the ball around,” said Hopkins.

DeAndre believes the Tigers have the talent to replace Jacoby and play well in 2010.

“We have good receivers.  We wanted to come in and play well when called on and make plays,” said Hopkins.

For years the former Daniel High star had dreamed of playing in Death Valley.  How did he enjoy his first game?

“That first catch was great.  It was amazing.  I think it was 15 or 16 yards.  It just felt great to get that out of my system.  My first game, my first catch, it felt great,” replied Hopkins.
