Clemson WR Hopper suspended for BC

10/11/2013

Clemson reserve receiver Germone Hopper has been suspended for the Boston College game, coach Dabo Swinney said in a statement Friday.

Reserve defensive back Ronald Geohaghan also was suspended. Swinney said both players will miss the game for a violation of team rules and "poor behavior."

Hopper is second on the team with 16 receptions, totaling 117 yards and two touchdowns. The coaches have worked to develop him into a reliable option in the pass game -- especially with Charone Peake out for the year. The redshirt freshman came into Clemson as one of the top-ranked prep receivers in the country. His best game so far came against FCS South Carolina State last month.

Geohaghan has played in three of five games this year.
