Time and time again, when the Michigan Wolverines were in dire need of a play or a critical fourth-down conversion, they turned to their unstoppable force - the senior running back, Blake Corum. This gridiron gladiator not only shattered the Michigan football record for the most rushing touchdowns in a single season, but he also set a new benchmark for the most touchdowns in school history during their triumphant 2023 championship season.
Blake Corum, the undeniable star and a key component of the powerhouse team, is now setting his sights on the National Football League (NFL). This move comes on the back of a successful season that has also seen the Wolverines' head coach, Jim Harbaugh, proceeding to the NFL.
Corum, on completing his time with the Wolverines, famously stated that his 'job's finished' at Michigan. However, he's also been vocal about who should carry on the work he started. He named Sherrone Moore as the rightful successor for the job.
“I mean, because he’s a Michigan man,” Corum revealed in an interview with The Wolverines’ Clayton Sayfie. “He’s been in the program for a long time, he’s been a great O.C. and he has top-10 wins under his belt already as a head coach. So, I think he’s shown that he’s the guy for the job.”
Moore, who has already proven his mettle by going 4-0 in his stint filling in for Jim Harbaugh, has also managed to secure a win over the Ohio State Buckeyes. With a recommendation from a player of Blake Corum's caliber and a proven track record, the future certainly looks promising for the Michigan Wolverines.
