Don't look for Clemson receiver DeAndre Hopkins to talk about his accomplishments, preferring to let others do it for him. And the Tigers junior has given people plenty to get excited about. Hopkins is 14th-ranked Clemson's other receiver opposite star All-American Sammy Watkins. But it's Hopkins who's grabbed the headlines, leading the Atlantic Coast Conference with 49 catches and 777 yards. Hopkins has set single game school marks this season with 13 catches against Auburn and 197 yards receiving against Boston College. He tied a school mark with three touchdowns in a win over Ball State. Hopkins is a big reason Clemson's offense is clicking along at record pace. Hopkins and the Tigers (5-1, 2-1 ACC) try and keep things going against Virginia Tech (4-3, 2-1) on Saturday.
