The homegrown talent is staying put.
And needless to say, his now-former head coach Jim Harbaugh is proud.
“Aidan Hutchinson, he just checks every single box,” Harbaugh explained. “The thing I love about him, and it’s so rare, Aidan Hutchinson should have a big head, and you would not blame him if he did. But he’s the kind of guy that doesn’t when he should — and that’s just really awesome when you see that in an athlete or any person, really.
“That’s who he is, and it’s infectious. He’s going to bring that to the Detroit Lions, just the same way he did for the University of Michigan. It’s great to have him in our home state.”
