After DeAndre Hopkins made one of the most insane touchdown catches we've ever seen on Sunday to secure a walk-off win against the Buffalo Bills, people are comparing his incredible leaping ability to that of a basketball player. Well, as some may not know, Hopkins, despite being a huge football star at Clemson, also played for the basketball team a bit.

However, after watching some of his tape from the hardwood in college, it's clear the skills it takes to be successful on the football field don't always translate over to the basketball court.

While just being good enough to make the basketball team while also being one of the football team's best players in an impressive feat in itself, it's clear that Hopkins made the right choice pursing football in the professional ranks.
