Hopkins Denies Trashing Hotel Room
WOLO -- Former Clemson star wide receiver DeAndre "Nuk" Hopkins has denied trashing a hotel room at the NFL scouting combine in Indianapolis.
The Crowne Plaza room in question reportedly belonged to Hopkins and fellow prospect Rutgers wide receiver Mark Harrison.
According to ESPN.com and Yahoo Sports reports, urine and feces were found around the bathroom, toothpaste was left on the mirror and partially eaten food was on one of the beds.
Hopkins told FoxSports.com that the room was fine when he checked out.
"Luckily, thank God, my agent got my flight booked early or it really would've been questionable if I did [it] or not," he said. "My agent got my flight booked early. He told me hurry up."
"I got done before Mark Harrison, so I was already packed. I already took a shower and packed and everything. Mark came in and we spoke for at least 20 minutes about the combine. Then the bellman came in and helped me get my bags out. And I left. That's, honestly, all I can say."
Hopkins also said he feels Harrison had nothing to do with the incident.
