"(Hopper) will bring not only a physical blocking style, but an ability to stretch the field to Boise State," Roswell coach Matt Kemper told the Idaho Statesman. "His ball skills are second to none. He can make all the catches and creates a tremendous matchup problem for defenses."
Hopper was one of 20 players who signed up with the Broncos on Wednesday. Under the direction of head coach Bryan Harsin, the Broncos went 11-3 last year, won the Mountain West conference, beat Oregon in the Las Vegas Bowl, and finished the season ranked No. 22 in the AP Poll.
Hopper's older brother, Tyrone, is finishing up his freshman year at North Carolina. Also a Roswell graduate, he played in six games for the Tar Heel's defense and tallied eight tackles, including a sack and forced fumble, according to ESPN.
