DeAndre Hopkins. HANDS.
— Bleacher Report (@BleacherReport) October 14, 2018
Hopkins was actually a star basketball player long before he played a down of football.
He started on the varsity basketball team as a freshman at D.W. Daniel High (Central, South Carolina) and later was named South Carolina 3A Player of the Year by the Independent-Mail.
But his buddies on the football team continuously urged Hopkins to try out for the squad, and he eventually did so during his sophomore year.
That same season, he set a new school record with 14 interceptions at defensive back.
Hopkins shows off the insane vertical of a former basketball player on this play.
He also displays excellent hand strength, as Buffalo Bills cornerback Tre'Davious White attempts to pry his left arm away from the football to no avail.
