Hopper played at the Shrine Bowl
Hopper tweeted the following about his decision to attend Clemson University.
"Because of Gods Grace, I'm grateful to announce that I will not be attending any of the colleges I have offers from but will be taking a different path and taking a year off of football to get my grades up to take my preferred walk-on to Clemson University. My dream is to play in a Tiger uniform and I'm willing to sacrifice what could be good now to receive what will be great later. Everything didn't work out the way I would of liked but I'm following God here not Jayson. There are plenty of walk-on football players that become the best at what they do. I can't wait for my dream to become a REALITY. Thank you everyone who stuck with me and supported me through the past 4 years of my life. The Best is Yet to Come!"
Hopper had offers from App State, Garner-Webb and Presbyterian College.
TigerNet saw him at the last two Dabo Swinney Football camps and this year's Shrine Bowl and was impressed by his route-running skills and hands.
