Mario Eugenio, a four-star defensive lineman in the class of 2022, has decommitted from the Michigan Wolverines, he announced on Twitter Thursday morning.
The 6-foot-3, 240-pound edge rusher from the state of Florida took his official visit to Michigan in June and decided not long after that in July. He was recruited by defensive line coach Shaun Nua.
As a junior in 2020 for Gaither High School, Eugenio put up some eye-popping stats — 42 tackles, 20 tackles for loss, 17 sacks, five pass breakups, three forced fumbles, two fumble recoveries and two interceptions.
Eugenio was Michigan’s top-ranked defensive line prospect in the 2022 class, coming in at No. 268 overall. Michigan still has three-star interior line commits Kenneth Grant and Mason Graham locked in.
This is a big loss for Michigan’s class. Nua and the Wolverines worked hard on him to commit over the summer. Now, they are forced to pick up the pieces and start over. With not a whole lot of time before the early signing period in December, we will have to wait and see what Michigan’s game plan is for recruiting another edge defender.
This is a developing story.
