Recruiting class grows more impressive with Hopkins

The Cougars scored another win in the recruiting game.

Sunday night, Houston Chronicle’s Sam Khan Jr. reported that defensive tackle, Donald Hopkins has verbally committed to UH.

At 6 feet 2 inches, the 275-pound lineman from Lago Vista High School was originally committed to Missouri, but pulled his commitment on Jan. 10.

Hopkins participated in the Under Armour All-America High School Football Game and is ranked as the 17th best defensive tackle in the nation by

As a senior, Hopkins recorded 92 tackles, 14 for a loss, six sacks and forced five fumbles.

In addition to UH, Hopkins had offers from 17 other schools including Arizona, Arizona State, Baylor and Utah.

Hopkins told the Chronicle that his decision to come to Houston was not based on the Cougars’ recent success, but rather his desire to stay close to home and play in a big city along with the relationship that he has developed with defensive line coach, Carlton Hall.
