Justin Hopkins: The Guru of Oregon Recruiting Returns!

My friends, I work with all the sites dedicated to Oregon football, but one man really stood out in being able to find information that no one else could, especially in the Oregon Football Recruiting world. Justin Hopkins has simply been incredible for Oregon fans and so much of the recruiting information you read on these pages came from him after his readers enjoyed the delicious news first.

He was very generous in sharing his expertise with FishDuck.com readers, and in turn we promoted the site at which he previously worked. It worked well for both parties as Jhop is a stand-up, hard working, honorable man. I am delighted with his big announcement below, and wish to support him enthusiastically and urge others to join him.

Jhop has returned! He is going to be able to do some amazing things now that he is independent, and I can’t wait to watch!  Charles Fischer

You didn’t really think I would stay gone did you?

It brings me great joy and a sense of pride to have this opportunity. Many of you know there is no greater feeling than owning your own business, and now I can consider myself among those of you.

For those of you that don’t know me, it’s pretty easy. I’m Jhop, Justin Hopkins, living in beautiful Southern Oregon. I have three amazing kids that love to play sports (and love even more when I coach them), and I write about the Oregon Ducks. (Sometimes craft beer, too.)

I’ve met so many of you around town, at games, at Duck clubs. You name it, I’ve run into a lot of you amazing Duck fans.

For the last eight years, I’ve invested my time and efforts into this Oregon market getting to know recruits, coaches, fans and just about everyone in between. With my hard work and passion for what I do, I’ve been fortunate enough to become one of the top insiders in this unique Oregon football market. And as many of you know, that’s no easy task.

I’m not afraid to speak my mind, and I’m not afraid to put in the work.

I’m definitely not afraid to go the extra mile to get the real inside scoop about your beloved Ducks whether it be injury reports to official visits to coaching news. I cover it all, and I absolutely love doing it.

While Charles and the crew here at FishDuck.com have a TON of great insight to offer you, come see what we have at ScoopDuck.com, too. We offer free accounts along with our low-cost subscriptions, and we have a great community of insightful posters that love the Ducks just like you do.

Best of all, like this site, you are supporting an Oregon business. Local people that will turn around and put that money right back into our own economy.

This site is going to be special. It’s going to be a much-needed breath of fresh air in this community. Come take a look at what we are offering and let’s ‘Do Something’ together.

    Just FYI, you might get a better click through rate to the new website if you hyperlink it somewhere up toward the top of this article. More than half of web traffic comes from mobile phones these days, and it’s more difficult to copy/paste or type in the url.

    Either way, I’m excited for this new site. Welcome back to the action, J Hop!

    • You are quite right. Justin had a bunch of things to finish at the last minute, and as of early this morning–did not have a link yet. But he does now and I added it.

      Like I said….I work with all the sites and enjoy their skills at each, and I will enjoy working with Jhop as well. You the reader, will benefit enormously from this development!

    Wait just one minute. I count more than 3 kids. I know they can be a handful, but you need to face the task ahead.

    Glad to see Justin back up and running. It’ll be interesting to see how his site does competing with his former site. One thing for sure is that there’s really no shortage of sites where fans can find information and talk about the Ducks.

    • It is going to be decision time for many fans as you have different sites that while some do different things–the majority are either oriented toward recruiting info., (JHop is King) sports news as it comes available, and then other areas such as Opinion pieces, and Analysis as we do here.

      I have noted quite a bit in the last five+ years, and will be restructuring our site to capitalize on our strengths, and stay away from areas like Sports News that others such as GoDucks.com, Comcast Sports NW, and OregonLive do better than FishDuck.com.

      The sites that rely on message boards and recruiting are vulnerable to Justin in a BIG way….

    Thanks Fish and everyone. I appreciate the support I have received so far. What a great community we are all fortunate to have.
