3 Days Until Kickoff!
Dark Territory Clemson Letterman Photo Of The Day
Deandre Hopkins played for Clemson from 2010 to 2012. As a true freshman in 2010, Hopkins was Clemson's leading receiver with 52 receptions for 637 yards and four touchdowns. Hopkins also played basketball after his freshman season.
As a sophomore in 2011, he had 72 receptions for 978 yards and five touchdowns.
In his junior season in 2012, Hopkins had one of the best receiving seasons in ACC history. Because of the two game suspension to Sammy Watkins and battling injuries, Hopkins had to step up as a leader for Clemson. Hopkins did just that, with an ACC-best 1,405 yards on 82 catches and a school-record 18 touchdowns (second in the nation) earning First Team All-Conference honors.
Hopkins, along with junior quarterback Tajh Boyd and wide receiver Sammy Watkins, combined to make one of the most prolific passing offenses in college football and broke many individual and career school records.
Hopkins left Clemson with career record for receiving yards (3,020) and career touchdown grabs (27) with at least one score in each of the last 12 games. On January 10, 2013 Hopkins decided to forgo his senior season at Clemson and enter the NFL draft.
