Berry High sophomore Germon Hopper—remember that name—is already drawing national attention, according to his coach, Andrew Howard.
“He’s been invited down to Clemson in two weeks for the Wake Forest game,” Howard said today. “Alabama’s already strongly interested in him, and N.C. State has been in contact.”
Hopper, who is 5-foot-10 and 160 pounds, already has 4.4-second speed in the 40-yard dash, according to Howard. He plays running back and wide receiver, and returns kickoffs and punts.
Last season—get this--as a ninth-grader, Hopper had around 2,400 all-purpose yards as a member of the varsity, Howard estimated.
“He’s the hardest worker on the team,” his coach said. “He can already bench-press 265 pounds.
“He’s a kid to watch.”
Everyone will be, and soon.
