Blake Corum, the running back for Michigan, made the announcement on Monday that he will be returning to the Wolverines for the 2023 season.
Mel Kiper Jr. and Todd McShay of ESPN ranked Corum, the fifth-best draft-eligible running back, as Michigan’s leading back.
Before getting hurt in the 11th game of the season against Illinois, the junior ran for 1,463 yards and 18 touchdowns. In the Ohio State game, Corum tried to play, but he only got two carries before leaving.
He missed the Big Ten championship game and the College Football Playoff semifinal against TCU because of knee surgery.
Corum has run for 2,415 yards and 30 touchdowns as one of Jim Harbaugh’s featured backs over the past two seasons. Corum and Donovan Edwards, who ran for 991 yards and seven touchdowns this season, will provide Michigan with two strong options at the position when he returns next season.
Together, the two contributed to Michigan’s rise to No. No. 3 rush attack in terms of total rush yards 5 in total game rushing yards and No. 1 in total rushing touchdowns.
Although tight end Luke Schoonmaker announced on Monday that he will enter the 2023 NFL draft, the offense will receive Corum back.
