Former Clemson standout Deandre "Nuk" Hopkins is one year away from a huge NFL contract and, therefore, has changed agents from Hadley Engelhard of Enter-Sports to Creative Artists Agency according to multiple reports.

Hopkins' new agents were behind Texans' teammate J.J. Watt's six-year extension worth over $100 million dollars. Other NFL clients on their resume include linebacker Luke Kuechly, quarterbacks Matt Stanford and Matt Ryan.

Hopkins had 111 catches for 1,521 yards and 11 touchdowns and was named as a Pro-Bowl starter for the first time in his career (alternate last season).

He is the second player in NFL history along with Randy Moss to record 3,500 receiving yards before the age of 24. He has accrued an amazing 239 catches for 3,533 yards (14.8 ypg) and 19 touchdowns since entering the NFL in 2013.

His 2015-2016 season was remarkable in a Texans' historical perspective as he had the third-most catches, fourth-most receiving yards and fourth most receiving touchdowns. He was also the first player in NFL history to have 100-yard receiving games with four different starting quarterback in a single season (Brian Hoyer, Ryan Mallett, T.J. Yates and Brandon Weeden).
