RB Germone Hopper Profile
And Clemson has interest in Berry Academy (Charlotte) junior athlete Germone Hopper.
He told CUTigers recently that he and Tiger special teams coordinator/tight ends coach Danny Pearman are in regular contact.
"I call coach Pearman a lot. I talk to coach Pearman a lot," Hopper said. "We e-mail. I'll call him. He came down to talk to my coach about me, stuff like that, about what position I would play, if I was to come to Clemson."
As a junior, Hopper rushed for 1,359 yards and 18 touchdowns on 162 carries and made 39 receptions for 465 yards and five scores during.
He rushed for 1,202 yards and 23 touchdowns and had 482 receiving yards and six scores as a sophomore. Hopper has 15 career return touchdowns.
"Coach Pearman asked me what I would prefer. I said slot receiver, but it really doesn't matter where I play," he said. "He told me that he could see me playing a little bit of wide receiver, kick return, punt return, tailback. He said I could be a good coverage corner. There are a lot of things I could play."
Hopper already claims several offers from the ACC and SEC. Clemson is among those that have verbally offered.
"Right now, I'm all even," he said.
Recently, he visited North Carolina for junior day. He'll visit South Carolina this weekend and a visit to Clemson for the Mar. 5 junior day is also lined up.
His last visit to Clemson was for a one-day session at the Dabo Swinney Football Camp.
A commitment won't be made anytime soon.
"I'm going to take as much time as possible because it's an important decision to make," Hopper said. "I want it to be the right decision because that's going to be the place that I'm going to spend the next four years of my life."
His high school teammate, Nick Dawson, is also being considered by the Tigers. Both are looking at several of the same schools, and have even talked about going to school together.
"We don't know for sure. We've talked about it a lot," Hopper said.
Plenty of contact with Pearman
