Michigan Wolverine head coach Brady Hoke

Michigan Wolverine commit Derrick GreenWith 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.
