Although he is just a sophomore, Nuke Hopkins is one of the leaders at receiver heading into 2011. Nuke believes the nation’s top receiver class is going to make a big difference this season.
“Those fellas want to come in and play. It is just going to help us when we see them working hard it will make us work harder. It is different. It is going to be more up tempo, more fast paced,” said Hopkins.
Nuke believes with the new additions the Tigers will have one of the best groups of receivers in their history.
“They are very impressive, very impressive. We can have one of the best groups of receivers in Clemson history I feel like. Those guys came in and they know the goal that we are working towards,” said Hopkins.
It is not just the freshmen’s athletic abilities that have impressed Nuke.
“It is there will to work. A lot of people talk about their speed and all that but those guys came in to work,” said Hopkins.
