Updated Scout Top 100

A handful of Clemson targets for the class of 2010 litter Scout.com's updated list of top 100 prospects, which were released early Monday morning.

Included in the list is Clemson verbal commitment DeAndre Hopkins, who now comes in at No. 97 on the list.

Hopkins is currently rated the No. 3 cornerback in the country, even though the Clemson coaching staff has accepted his verbal commitment as a wide receiver.

Last year, Hopkins caught 29 passes for 539 yards and eight scores in a part time capacity on offense. The 6-foot-2, 175-pound junior is also the Tigers' No. 1 prospect at defensive back when he registered 37 tackles and nine interceptions from his cornerback position after leading the Lions to a second straight Western AAA Championship and a 13-1 record.

A two-year starter, he has 23 career interceptions, after setting the state record for interceptions as a sophomore with 14.

The Tigers have four verbal commitments in all for the class of 2010, including Hopkins and fellow four-star Martavis Bryant, the No. 1 wide receiver in South Carolina.

The Tigers are expected to sign over 20 prospects for the 2010 class.
