Scout Takes a Look at the Recruitment of WR Jacoby Hopkins

Scout takes a look into the recruitment of Houston-based wide receiver Jacoby Hopkins, who is starting to collect some nice offers.

Jacoby Hopkins, a 6-foot-1, 191-pound wide receiver from Houston (Texas) Heights had an impressive 2016 season.  


He finished his junior year with 50 catches for 858 yards and seven touchdowns on 17.6 yards per reception. He also returned a kickoff for a TD and a punt for a TD.

"I am a deep threat," Hopkins said of his strengths as a receiver.

That a deep threat ability has put him firmly on the radar of a number of colleges. He has secured a half-dozen offers. 

"I have six offers so far from Oregon StateLouisvilleNew Mexico, Houston Baptist, Howard, and Louisiana-Lafayette," Hopkins said. 

Who is showing the most heavy or serious interest in Hopkins?  

"Lafayette and Oregon State," Hopkins answered. "They are telling me that I will like it down there and that it is a second home, so I like to hear that. In June I am going up to Oregon State. And I was just down at Lafayette a couple weeks ago."

Hopkins says that he is also on the radar of programs such as Houston and Texas Tech
