Michigan RB Blake Corum Returning for 2023 Season

Michigan junior running back Blake Corum has opted to return for his senior season with the team and forego the 2023 NFL Draft, per his Twitter.

This comes as a surprise, but perhaps on a smaller scale compared to recent years, with NIL giving players a reason to stay at the collegiate level. Corum missed some of this past season due to a knee injury and may have heard some not-so-great things about his NFL stock due to the ailment. He’ll now have his senior season to improve and attempt to win a National Championship with the Wolverines.

It’s also worth noting that Corum is returning amid speculation surrounding head coach Jim Harbaugh’s future with the program. His name has appeared in some rumors regarding NFL team positions, which would be a drastic move with Corum choosing to return to the program.
