Blake Corum has already left an indelible mark as a Wolverine, but in 2023, he has the chance to solidify his legendary status with yet another exceptional season. If he maintains his impressive productivity, Corum has the potential to etch his name in the annals of Michigan football history. He could finish among the top ten all-time rushers for the Wolverines and secure a spot in the top five for rushing touchdowns. While Corum remains focused on his team's success rather than individual accolades, his unwavering determination to leave a lasting legacy fuels his pursuit.

"How do I want to be remembered?" Corum asked himself. "Am I fine with being Blake Corum, a good Michigan running back, or do I want to be a legend?"

This relentless drive, coupled with Corum's unparalleled work ethic and self-motivation, catapulted him into the Heisman conversation last year. It wouldn't be surprising to see him back in the spotlight in 2023. With full awareness of his capabilities, a solid offensive line, and an abundance of opportunities, Corum made the resolute decision to return to Ann Arbor for one final shot at glory.

"I've always been a confident person when I'm on that field," he said. "I know what I'm capable of and what I've been doing since I was six. I know the work that I put in is going to pay off. 

Corum has already accomplished a great deal, but his hunger for success drives him to aim even higher. The entirety of his aspirations revolves around the collective goals of the team.

"A lot of things went into my decision to come back for one more year," he said. "For me, it was really just unfinished business. I had the opportunity to go to the next level but I came back for a better cause."

Blake Corum embodies the essence of a dedicated athlete. His unwavering pursuit of greatness, his insatiable hunger for victory, and his unwavering commitment to his team's cause make him a force to be reckoned with on the football field. As the 2023 season dawns, all eyes will be on Corum as he strives to etch his name in the pantheon of Michigan football legends.
