1-on-1 with Morris a big deal

One of the top athletes in North Carolina sat down for a one-on-one meeting with Clemson offensive coordinator Chad Morris during last week's Junior Day.

Berry Academy (Charlotte) junior athlete Germone Hopper told CUTigers that the meeting with Morris was the best part of the visit.

"He put a little highlight tape together to show me how he would use me on the offensive side of the ball. I would play the 2. It's a position they have. The 2, 5 and the 9, it's the slot, running back and outside wide receiver. He showed me Damaris Johnson from Tulsa, the one he used to coach," Hopper said. "He showed me that he would use me like him. He showed me some clips of Damaris Johnson, showing me how he would use me."

Morris also gave Hopper a peak at his recruiting board. And the name sitting atop that list?

Germone Hopper.

"He said he could use me in various ways, so that makes me unique for his offense," Hopper said. "That's why he said I'm number one on his recruiting board. That's what just took the visit over the top."

Later this month, he'll visit N.C. State, Auburn and Virginia. He's also recently visited Virginia Tech, South Carolina and North Carolina.

Hopper doesn't claim any favorites.

After last weekend's visit to Clemson, the Tigers are in very good shape.

"As far as the visit, it's been the best visit I've been on," he said. "Everything they showed me, they talked to my mom. My mom, they got to know what she likes. They showed me everything, how it would be if I was to go there."
