This past season he caught 20 passes for 257 yards and three touchdowns. Hopper currently has more than four FBS offers and starts the year off #1 at the TE position.

Coming in at #2 is hybrid WR/TE Zach Williams of Johns Creek. As a junior he snagged 43 passes for 979 yards and nine touchdowns. For his effort he was honored as AAAAAA First Team All-State by both the AJC and Recruit Georgia.

Katerian Legrone of BEST Academy is another vertical threat in the passing game. In just 11 games he caught 33 passes for 671 yards and seven scores. He makes his entry at #3.
