Michigan Wolverines’ defensive end Aidan Hutchinson is officially bound for the NFL, as he declared for the 2022 NFL Draft on (day).
The senior from Plymouth made an impact from the moment he stepped on campus for the first time. He played in every game as a true freshman in 2018, compiling 15 tackles and 1.5 tackles for loss. He took a big step forward in 2019 as a sophomore, once again playing in all 13 games and racking up 68 tackles, 10 tackles for loss, six passes deflected, 4.5 sacks and two forced fumbles.
Then, adversity hit. Hutchinson broke his leg in the third game of the 2020 season. An offseason of rehab and “what-ifs” transitioned into one of the best regular seasons a Michigan defender has ever had.
