Former Auburn Contractor Adam Hopkins Ready to Help Colorado Football ‘Rebuild’ –

He wasn’t the first and certainly won’t be the last, but Adam Hopkins’ move to Colorado football was one of the most notable steps in the recruiting path for Deion Sanders and the Buffs.

The Peach State prospect, known as one of the top two-wayers in the South as the Colorado head coach was in his day, was once a stint at Auburn University. The program also, of course, went through a coaching change after the 2022 season, and the Thomasville, Ga. Thomas County Central standout would return to the open market soon after.

20 days later he was one of the Splash commitments of the early signing period and selected the program without having attended Boulder.

“It was definitely a lot and a lot of stress for my guys and me too,” Hopkins said Colorado on Athlon recently. “But God works in mysterious ways, so maybe being[in Auburn]wasn’t right for me, so it opened up another opportunity for me to pursue and fill.”

Instead of playing in neighboring Alabama, one of Georgia’s best players is gearing up for Pac-12 country. Hopkins will make an official visit to Boulder this weekend, along with droves of top junior class recruits for the first high-profile Junior Day weekend of Sanders’ tenure.
