"Phillip O. Berry Academy (Charlotte, N.C.) is blessed to have two big-time 2012 recruits in Germone Hopper, who stars on offense, and defensive standout Nick Dawson."
Hopper said he grew up a fan of the Clemson Tigers.
"They are my favorite team," Hopper said. "It's because of my uncle. He turned me on to them when I was young. As a matter of fact, they were the first team that offered me and that was so exciting. You can't do any better than get an offer from your dream school. But I am going to keep an open mind with the recruiting process and take it all in."
"Hopper has already visited the Tigers as well as Virginia Tech. He hopes to get to the Clemson spring game next month and maybe even the Hokies' spring game as well."
Dawson claims offers from Louisville, Kentucky, NC State, Clemson, Virginia, Auburn, Maryland, Illinois, and Tennessee.
"I have gotten a good jump on the recruiting process," Dawson said. "I loved Clemson and I love coach [Kevin] Steele. We had a great one-on-one [conversation]. I would say of the other visits Louisville was No. 2. That was a great trip."
