JUST IN: Blake Corum To Announce Decision Today
When it comes to a decision on Blake Corum’s future at the University of Michigan, it appears as though the wait is almost over for Michigan fans. According to the official twitter account for the Rich Eisen Show, Corum is set to join the show this afternoon at 2 pm ET and will announce his decision for 2023.
Corum was considered to be a legitimate Heisman candidate for much for the 2022 season, until a late season injury in week 12 sidelined him for the remainder of the year. The talented running back would eventually finish his junior season with 1,463 yards and 18 touchdowns on 247 rushing attempts – along with 80 yards and another touchdown on 11 receptions.
