With national signing day less than two weeks away, the Michigan Wolverine’s picked up a big commitment.
Running back Derrick Green announced he would become a Wolverine and the news was so exciting for Hoke that according to Green himself, Hoke began to cry.
“He was real excited,” Green told 247sports.com. “I kept him on his toes. But when I told him today, he was just astounded and actually started crying. It was crazy. It was an unbelievable experience.”
Green’s commitment to Michigan is big news for the Wolverines who lost Denard Robinson to graduation and Fitz Toussaint to an injury late in the season.
Green could end up being the starting running back heading into the 2013 season.

Michigan Wolverines defensive end Frank Clark unveiled his new tattoo on Twitter, which was a tribute to his football career and most likely his struggles off-the-field. He shows off his number 57, along with the classic Michigan block M. The image right underneath the word “struggle” is a Tarblooder.

National signing day is nearly upon us (less than ten days away for those keeping track) and we are continuing to see some big recruiting news leading up to the most important day in college football's off-season. Over the weekend Michigan and Notre Dame each secured some lucrative verbal commitments, and once again it seems Ole Miss is continuing to build momentum.
A few weeks ago I sat down and started to prepare an Incoming post welcoming Derrick Green to Team 134. I then remembered that nothing has been going my way as of late and quite frankly, I just didn't want jinx it. I've always been so superstitious, and once again it paid off! YAHTZEE!!!!

Meet Derrick Green
Scout: 5-star, #1...
We're nearing the week left mark as we inch towards national signing day next Wednesday and that means things are getting a bit crazy on the recruiting trail. Just look at what occurred over the weekend in Michigan as prized running back prospect Derrick Green (No. 1 RB by Rivals & Scout) chose the Wolverines and got tough guy Brady Hoke to break down crying.
A closer look at Illinois' Sunday opponent -- the Michigan Wolverines.
For the first time since the Fab Five wore maize and blue uniforms, Michigan is the No. 1 team in the country.
After occupying spots two through five this season, the Wolverines finally moved to No. 1 in the Associated Press Top 25 released this afternoon after a school-record 19-1 start. The Wolverines earned 51 first place votes ahead of Kansas with 13 and Florida with one.
Big Ten play hasn’t been the easiest of times for Michigan freshman Nik Stauskas as teams pay more and more attention to the sharp shooting Canadian. But as he and his coach continue to say, his development is all a process—which will continue this evening at Illinois (6 PM EST, BTN).
In his weekly appearance on Sports Talk 1050 WTKA the Wolverines headman discussed his team's victory over Illinois, the program;s rise to #1 as well as his own, the addition of more low post play to the offense, why he isn't thinking about taking Jordan Morgan out of the starting line up, the upcoming match up with Northwestern, and more.
Sitting atop the rankings, the Michigan Wolverines present a tough challenge for Northwestern. The key for the Wildcats' chances is shutting down point guard Trey Burke; a difficult duty, but one the Wildcats are preparing for.
CHAMPAIGN, Ill. -- Trey Burke scored 19 points and No. 2 Michigan never trailed after the opening minutes of a 74-60 win Sunday over Illinois that could push the Wolverines to No. 1 in the nation for the first time since the 1992-93 season.
