Hopkins turning Pro

Clemson All-America wide receiver DeAndre Hopkins has decided to forego his senior year and will enter the 2013 NFL draft. Hopkins told his teammates at a team meeting late Thursday afternoon. The native of Central and nearby Daniel High School had 82 receptions for 1,405 yards and 18 touchdowns this season.  He established ACC records for touchdown receptions in a season, consecutive games with at least one touchdown reception (10) and most games with a reception touchdown (12). He was named first-team All-ACC and was a second-team All-America selection by Athlon, CBS Sports, Lindy’s, Phil Steele and Scout.com.  Nationally, Hopkins ranked second in the nation in touchdown receptions and was fourth in receiving yardage.
