Junior WR Jayson Hopper (6-1 190) of Lexington has caught a lot of passes this season, and Clemson’s attention as well. Going into Friday’s game, Hopper had 37 catches for 405 yards and 7 touchdowns.
Hopper grew up a USC fan but in state most of his major recruiting attention is coming from Clemson. He went to camp for three days there last summer and has been to two games this season.
“They are going to take three receivers and I’ve got to show them on film,” Hopper said. “I loved it up there. There’s no place like it. I would jump on an offer.”
Hopper has an offer from Appalachian State and he visited there over the weekend. He’s also heard from Purdue, Virginia Tech, Virginia and Kentucky.
