Hoke just told Sam Webb that's just a rumor, he has never cried over a recruit (read: Green). His dad - yes. Recruits - nah. Not sure where that rumor started. As some people in that thread said, you could see Hoke crying after a young man graduates after 5 years with Hoke but just for a signing? Nah.
Now has Hoke often pointed at a recruit? Hell yes. (allegedly)
EDIT - as poster commented below the quote came from Green
“He was real excited,” Green said. “I kept him on his toes. But when I told him today he was just astound and actually started crying. It was crazy, it was an unbelievable experience.”
