Michigan DE Aidan Hutchinson, who was the runner-up for the Heisman Trophy after compiling 14 sacks and 16.5 tackles for loss this season, is entering the 2022 NFL draft.
Hutchinson was the Heisman Trophy runner-up in 2021, becoming the third defensive player to finish second in the history of the award. He was also a consensus All-American, and the Lombardi Award winner, which is given to the top lineman in the nation.
“My Michigan legacy is complete, and it was truly the best time of my life,” Hutchinson said in a statement posted to Twitter on Wednesday. “Onward and upward to the 2022 NFL draft. Thank you for everything, Wolverine nation and beyond.”
In his post, Hutchinson also highlighted the importance of Michigan snapping an eight-game losing streak to Ohio State this season.
