In recent months, proud mom Melissa has been documenting her family’s “surreal” journey as Hutchinson, 21, has soared to the top of mock draft boards — something she called “uncharted territory” in an Instagram post last week.

“Had a little taste of it last week during an ESPN shoot we were honored to be a part of…I thought this image was such a poignant foreshadowing here as Aidan stands overlooking the city that will host one of the most extraordinary nights of his life ,” she captioned the postwhich featured the Heisman Trophy runner-up at a pre-draft photo shoot with ESPN.

“I could write a book about our experience so far, but for now, all I can say is meeting and working with some of the most incredibly kind, hard-working, beautifully-spirited people has by far been some of the greatest experiences of my own life in the last 6 months. As you can imagine, this is all pretty surreal for our family, definitely unchartered territory….I say this over and again, but gratitude runs deep for all the support.💫”
