I would guess that you're right about tearing it on the deep hack squats, especially if you were allowing your heels to rise off the platform. The shearing force in the knee on a hack squat (which is bad enough) is compounded by the fact that the back pad doesn't allow the hips to change position.

I hope your rehab went well and it hasn't soured you on deep squats of the proper/functional type.
