Clemson wide receivers coach and recruiting coordinator Jeff Scott tweeted this photo of junior wideout DeAndre Hopkins. It shows the wide receiver getting baptized.

Scott then wrote, "highlight of my week...was seeing DeAndre Hopkins get Baptized in front of his teammates on Thursday after practice." 

Scott, who was named one of the nation's top-25 recruiters by, received all sorts of praise on Twitter:
