Michigan running back, Blake Corum, has officially declared that the 2023 season will be his last wearing the maize and blue. After a thrilling home victory against Purdue, Corum revealed that it was his final night game in the iconic Big House. However, before bidding farewell, the Wolverines have two away games in Weeks 11 and 12, culminating in a highly-anticipated showdown against Ohio State at noon ET for The Game.
As Corum enters his fourth year with Michigan, his impressive career boasts a remarkable 39 games played. While he never utilized a redshirt, the NCAA's COVID-19 waiver granted him the opportunity to potentially return for a fifth season in 2024.
Last season, Corum's outstanding performance earned him the prestigious Unanimous First-Team All-American recognition. With 12 starts under his belt, he propelled Michigan to another Big Ten title, showcasing his exceptional skills with 1,463 rushing yards on 247 attempts and an impressive 18 touchdowns on the ground.
This season, Corum has already made his mark, rushing for 649 yards and scoring an impressive 16 touchdowns on 126 carries. As the Wolverines progress, they face their most formidable challenge yet, as they prepare to take on Penn State in Week 11.
With Corum's undeniable talent and achievements, it comes as no surprise that Michigan fans eagerly anticipate his future in professional football. The fervent hope among the fans is that Corum will lead the Wolverines to a championship in Ann Arbor before embarking on his professional career.
