The Michigan Wolverines are gearing up for another College Football Playoff and hopefully national championship run. This time they hope to do it with their best player, RB Blake Corum. Corum injured his knee against Illinois last season and required surgery which caused him to miss the rest of the season. He is still rehabbing and is missing spring practice but Corum himself said that he will be ready by the fall.
Michigan RB Blake Corum Will Be Ready By The Fall
“Feeling great all-around mentally, physically spiritually,” Corum said in an interview with The Associated Press on Thursday. He has had plenty of time to rehab the left knee over the past couple of months. He said he would “definitely” be back by fall camp and is “100%” sure that he will play in the season opener against East Carolina. This is welcome news for the Wolverines as Corum was a huge part of their offense last season. Corum ran for 1,463 yards and 18 touchdowns last season before the injury. The Wolverines will welcome that type of production again.
Michigan will boast one of the best backfield tandems in the league. Donovan Edwards also returns who had a huge game against Ohio State when Corum was out with an injury. Having this backfield duo will make the Wolverines’ offense difficult to stop. Michigan had one of the best run games in the country last season and I would expect that to continue this season.
Blake Corum was in the Heisman conversation before he went down with an injury. If he has as good of a season this year as he did last year, expect him to be in that conversation again.
