Hopkins Taking it Day by Day


TheClemsonInsider.com caught up with DeAndre Hopkins before practice on Sunday. 

“Practice has been going good.  I think you can tell with the team there is a different vibe down here.  We are down here in Miami and guys are still serious just like when we are in Clemson,” said Hopkins.

DeAndre practiced with the team for the first time Saturday since his car accident.

“I ran and everything and did the routes.  It felt good to be out there,” said Hopkins.

After six days in Florida the Tigers are ready for the game to arrive.

“Yeah we have been like that.  I would probably say since the day we got here.  We are not an out of shape team.  The being in shape part that is no problem,” said Hopkins.

Nuk said coach Swinney is doing a good job of keeping the team focused on the game.

“Coach Swinney is keeping us on an early curfew.  Some guys can’t go out and do the things they want to but I think it is a good thing that we aren’t out playing all night,” said Hopkins.

Where does Nuk stand with his injury?

“I am pretty much back in the middle of things.  I am not sure what I will do today as far as practice goes and hitting.  I haven’t talked to the trainers yet, but I feel good about practice,” said Hopkins.

Will Nuk be limited come game time Wednesday?

“I hope not, but I am not sure yet.  Like I said I am leaving that to the trainers and taking it day by day,” said Hopkins.



Third-ranked Clemson returned to the gridiron after three weeks without a game. The Tigers returned with a vengeance and rolled to a 52-17 win over Pitt in their final game of the season at Death Valley. (…)
