On his SiriusXM radio show Tuesday, Hoke reportedly denied falling asleep.
"No, never happened," he said, according to the Detroit Free Press. "I went to his house. Greg Mattison and I went to his house. … No, I absolutely didn’t. I have never fallen asleep. You’re so excited to get in there and recruit and talk to (them). Maybe De’Veon fell asleep. He’s a great kid."
