Why be excited: Hopper's best 200-meter time - 21.4 seconds - is nearly as fast as Sammy Watkins' time in winning the Florida state high school meet last spring. The comparison to Watkins extends to his playmaking ability in football, as well. In addition to his speed, Hopper plays bigger, and more physically, than his size might indicate, and he shares with Watkins and DeAndre Hopkins the ability to adjust on the fly and in high-pointing the ball in flight.
You may not know: He opened his senior high school season by returning both a kickoff and a punt for touchdowns, rushed for the game-winning touchdown in his second game, and then in the third game of the season returned a kickoff 92 yards for a touchdown against nationally-ranked Mallard Creek.
How he fits into the depth chart: The Tigers are loaded with young, skilled wide receivers, but in Chad Morris' offense, there is always room for more. Hopper should be able to crack the Tigers' six-man two-deep deep fall, and also provided another option in the return game.
