Clemson wide receiver commit Germone Hopper is representing the East time this week in the US Army All-American Bowl.
"My week has been great down here. We've been competing down here in front of all these people, I haven't ever been to anything like this, so I'm just going to try and showcase my talent down here and make a name for myself," he said.
Hopper had a few friends coming in to the week. "I knew Nick Dawson, Raphael Kirby, I knew a lot of people down here before I came. It's just nice reuniting with them."
Hopper, who committed to the Tigers last April, has been spending his week doing some recruiting of his own.
"I'm trying to get Jonathan Bullard, trying to get my brother Nick Dawson, my roommate this week. If I could get those two, that would complete the package. I just try and drill in their head 'Clemson is where you want to be. I know you want to be a Tiger.' And we're starting a tradition there, as far as the tradition they've been having, and just trying to keep building."
Does Hopper think his chances are good?
"Yeah, I do. Actually, Jonathan Bullard, we hang around a lot. He's been hanging around a lot of the Clemson commits, like Bradley Pinion, Carlos Watkins, and me, so we hang around a lot."
Hopper himself is set with Clemson and will head to campus in July.
"Clemson was the best fit for me as far as being a slot receiver, they needed a slot receiver that can move around like Sammy, they needed another Sammy Watkins and they told me that was what I was going to be."
In the meantime, Hopper is focusing on Saturday's game.
"I think we're a lot bigger than them and a lot faster than them, so we'll see what happens on Saturday," he said.
