ANN ARBOR, Mich. – Just hours before this season’s Heisman Trophy winner is announced, Michigan football players, coaches, alumni and recruits are flooding social media with support for Aidan Hutchinson.

Hutchinson, who was named one of four Heisman finalists on Monday, is being considered alongside Alabama quarterback Bryce Young, Pittsburgh quarterback Kenny Pickett and Ohio State quarterback C.J. Stroud.

Young has been deemed a heavy favorite, but the Wolverines are still holding out hope.
