Cuero running back D'Anthony Hopkins attended the University of Texas-San Antonio's Junior Day on Saturday.
Hopkins is planning to spend a lot more time in San Antonio in the future.
Hopkins committed to play football at UTSA in the 2015 season.
The 6-foot-3, 215-pound Hopkins had offers from TCU, Houston, Texas State and Tulsa and was also being recruited by Oklahoma, Baylor and Texas Tech.
But Cuero football coach Travis Reeve said Hopkins felt UTSA was the right fit for him.
"He did have a bunch of offers," Reeve said. "But he really likes the San Antonio area. He went up there and did well. I think he was really excited."
Hopkins had 273 carries for 1,801 yards and 25 touchdowns during his junior season while helping to lead the Gobblers into the Class 3A, Division II regional playoffs.
He was a first-team All-District 26-3A selection and a first-team pick on the Advocate's all-area team. He also earned all-state honorable mention honors.
Hopkins won't be able to make his commitment official until national signing day on Feb. 4, 2015.
