"I talked with Coach Losey the offensive line coach a few days ago, then again today and they offered me," he informed us.
"Also, I talked with Coach Dawson as well today."
While Hopkins admitted he doesn't yet know a whole lot about the program, he's hoping to change that.
"I knew Coach Dawson from his time at Kentucky," he said. "Other than that, I didn't know a whole lot about them. But, I'm planning on coming for a visit either this Saturday or the next."
Hopkins has offers to Austin Peay and Eastern Kentucky, as well as starting to have interest from Tennessee.
"The biggest thing about me is that I'm a dual threat QB," he said. "We are close to starting spring practice and I'm real excited about that."
