UVa's linemen camp impresses Hopkins

Highland Springs (Va.) defensive end/defensive tackle Antoine Hopkins (6-foot-2, 275 pounds, 4.8 seconds) has long held offers from both Virginia and Virginia Tech. Having visited both schools previously, the Highland Springs lineman once again visited UVa for the Cavaliers' first annual linemen camp.
