Gonzaga Prep ATH Charlie Hopkins (Spokane, WA) received his first two offers just recently as Washington State and Idaho both put an offer on the table. Hopkins is also hearing from other big-time programs throughout the Northwest and more offers could be on the horizon. "UDub came to a basketball game of mine last week," he said. "Oregon State, Boise State, and Oregon have all dropped by to speak to my coach," he added.

Boise State has put more of an emphasis on recruiting in the Evergreen State in the past few recruiting classes. The Moore brothers and Allen Mooney came to Boise State from the State of Washington and many other prospects from the Evergreen State have been offered in the past few years as well. The Greater Spokane League produces some solid talent and it's no surprise that the Bronco coaches are attempting to recruit this area more heavily now.

Hopkins (6'6, 250, 5.0) plays both TE and DE at Gonzaga Prep. The high-flying offense at Boise State has peaked his interest. "Boise State's offense is crazy," he stated. "So much stuff happens and it's fun to watch. Boise State performed like crazy in the Fiesta Bowl. It was a great game to watch."

The summer camp circuit is still a few months away, but Hopkins is already making plans to attend a few camps. "I want to go to UDub, Boise, and Oregon this summer," he said.

Last season, Gonzaga Prep had an up and down season. They started the season hot by defeating Ferris, but cooled off as the season progressed as they lost a few really close games. "We beat Ferris in the second game and then lost to University," he said. "Our three losses were by a total of like eight points. I want to win every single game next season and I don't want any of them to be close," Hopkins added.

In 2009, Charlie was named First Team All-Greater Spokane League. He did most of his damage on defense as he racked up 10 sacks and had 1 INT.
