Grey Hoke saw his stock soar after he threw a three-hitter at A.C. Flora which played a large role in Camden’s 2-1 win on April 4.Following that performance against the top-ranked Falcons, the Bulldog left-hander and his head coach, Denny Beckley, were fielding calls from schools from throughout the region. Those newcomers to the party, though, were still way behind the recruiting efforts of The Citadel.The Southern Conference entry started keeping tabs on the 6-foot-3 Hoke during his junior season and sent at assistant coach to watch Hoke, in person, as he pitched in Camden’s season opener at A.C. Flora in Columbia. That persistence paid off with Hoke’s decision to attend The Citadel.
