"Camp was great and I learned a lot," Hopper said. "Coach Diaz is a great coach and he taught me a lot of things today. He talked about to me about flipping my hips and just about being a better player all the way around. I really liked him."
Over the course of the afternoon, the linebacker prospects were put through a battery of tests to test their mobility, physical skills and athleticism. One such drill was tackling a rolling exercise ball.
"That was a good drill," Hopper said. "He was talking to us about staying low and that a good player would be able to tackle that ball. You have to get low. It was pretty easy for me, because I have pretty good hips."
During the one-on-one drills, Hopper played in both a two point stance and with his hand on the ground as a defensive end, but on the next level the Peach State product expects to line up as a linebacker.
"Some college coaches are talking about me playing defensive end and some others are talking about linebacker," Hopper. "I see myself as a linebacker and that's where I hope to stay. I enjoy playing there."
Several schools have extended scholarship offers including Mississippi State. It appears that the Bulldogs took a positive step as a serious suitor during the camp.
"I have 20 offers and Mississippi State is one of those," Hopper said. "They are a great program and the coaches show a lot of love. I really like Mississippi State and I will get back soon.
"I am going to Kentucky for my next camp and then I am not sure after that."
Schools looking to make an impression still have time to put their best foot forward. Hopper reports that he is not ready to make a decision just yet.
"I am thinking about making a decision later in the summer," Hopper said. "If I am not ready, then I might wait until around the middle of the season. I am still thinking about things and I don't have any favorites right now. I am just keeping everybody even for now."
