Hopkins Visiting Ohio State, Kansas

Mikael Hopkins, the No. 12 power forward in the Class of 2011 out of DeMatha (Md.), will visit Ohio State this coming weekend when the Buckeyes host Miami in football and will also visit Kansas Sept. 24.

“He is at Ohio State this weekend on an official,” Team Takeover coach Keith Stevens said Tuesday by phone.

Stevens politely declined to say what other officials Hopkins would take.

“We kind of know where he’s gonna go,” he said. “He hasn’t told everybody. He’s going to Kansas on Sept. 24. The rest is up in the air.”

Stevens did say the 6-foot-8, 210-pound Hopkins has a number of in-home visits scheduled with Georgetown, Virginia Tech, West Virginia, Miami, Maryland, N.C. State, Kansas and Texas. Rutgers is no longer in the mix.

Stevens expects Hopkins to decide in the early signing period.
