Announced on his Twitter page Saturday morning, 2022 four-star defensive end Mario Eugenio has set his official visit to Michigan for June 18-20, which is being deemed the “Victors Weekend.” This is the first official visit Eugenio has publicly announced.
The 6-foot-3, 240-pounder from Clearwater, Florida was offered by the Wolverines back in February, and they have made him a major priority since then. They made him a Super Mario themed graphic last week, which was a pretty big hit with Eugenio.
Defensive line coach Shaun Nua has been all over this recruitment, along with new defensive analyst Ryan Osborn.
As a junior in 2020, Eugenio racked up 42 tackles, 20 tackles for loss, 17 sacks, five pass breakups, three forced fumbles, two fumble recoveries and one interception along the defensive line for Gaither High School. Those accolades helped him become a MaxPreps All-Florida second-team selection. He also competes in track and field.
Eugenio, who is the No. 366 overall player on the composite, also holds offers from Miami, Arizona State, Iowa State, Indiana, Arkansas, West Virginia and more. There is one crystal ball currently in for Iowa State.
The weekend of June 18 is shaping up to be a monster recruiting weekend for the Maize and Blue. There are already several prospects confirmed to be on campus, including five-star cornerback commit Will Johnson, five-star defensive lineman Walter Nolen, four-star defensive lineman Joe Strickland, four-star defensive end/linebacker Justice Finkley, four-star offensive lineman Lucas Heyer and more.
With more and more names being added to the list, this is sure to be one of the most important recruiting events of the cycle for the Wolverines. So stay locked in on Maize n Brew as more names become confirmed for “Victors Weekend.”
