Former LA Wildcats WR turn TE for The Spring League’s Jousters, Da’Quan Hampton, has reportedly signed with the Tampa Bay Buccaneers. Hampton also participated in the invite-only HUB Football CAMP in May.
Hampton went undrafted into the NFL in 2017, but signed with the Lions and the Saints during the offseason. He was released before the regular season could start.
Da’Quan played WR in college for the JuCo Long Beach City before transferring to USC. After the brief stint in the NFL, Hampton signed with the Wildcats where he had 4 catches for 26 yards and a TD in 5 games.
After the XFL season ended early because of the pandemic, Hampton played in The Spring League, making the transition to TE for the Jousters. He became one of the QB’s favorite targets, and helped the team reach the Mega Bowl.
The position swap is one quite a few WRs have been making recently, as teams are using the tight end spot in the passing game more and more. Players like Darren Waller, OJ Howard, Travis Kelce, and Zach Ertz are more involved in that facet and have opened doors for players like Hampton to catch on in the NFL. A fellow participant in the most recent HUB event, Jordan Matthewa was a former WR for a few NFL teams, but has since bulked up and made the switch to TE.
We wish him the best in his quest to fulfill his dream.
