The former five-star recruit is hoping to follow in his father’s footsteps in the NFL. The Johns Creek, Georgia native is hoping to prove the doubters wrong.

Christopher Hinton’s father, Chris Hinton, made seven Pro Bowls with the Indianapolis Colts during his NFL career. Christopher Hinton was in the class of 2019, along with Daxton Hill, and both of them declared early for the 2022 NFL draft.

Christopher Hinton played three seasons for Michigan, but he finally received a large role at defensive tackle this past season where he had 32 tackles and one sack — Hinton had two total sacks at Michigan for his career.

Hinton is going to have his work cut out for him leaving Michigan a year early, and signed as a UDFA with the New York Giants. But Hinton was a five-star recruit for a reason, and the sky is the limit if you have some raw talent.

Jordan Schultz reported the signing with the Giants on Saturday evening.
