The Missouri Tigers have received an expected verbal commitment from a talented 2012 DT prospect, in Donald Hopkins 6'2" 270 4.9 Lago Vista (TX). Hopkins confirmed the commitment to ShowMeMizzou.com.
"At first, I sat down with my parents, and my head coach," explained Hopkins. "We were just talking about it. They asked me what I wanted to do. They had no idea that I was going to commit today. I knew from late last night that Missouri's where I wanted to be."
"When I told them that I wanted to commit to Missouri, they were all high-fiving and happy," continued Hopkins. "Then, I called up (Missouri Assistant) Coach (Brian) Jones, and told him. He was walking into the coaches' meeting, and he started yelling and hollering. And, then I talked to all of the coaches there. They were all excited!"
Hopkins insists that he's a solid commit to Missouri.
"I really like Missouri," said Hopkins. "I felt comfortable when I was there. If they would have offered me when I was there, I would have committed (in April). I think I'm going to stick with Missouri."
Hopkins is planning to visit Missouri in the fall.
