Michigan running back Blake Corum will go down as one of the best running backs in Michigan history, and now he’ll be taking his talents to the NFL.

Corum posted a video to social media announcing he’ll be entering the NFL Draft.

“When I got hurt last year I came back and promised ya’ll I would bring a national championship home and that’s what Team 144 did,” Corum said in the video.

Corum was a major catalyst during Michigan’s national championship run, including two touchdowns in the Rose Bowl against Alabama and two touchdowns versus Washington in the national championship. Corum’s 27 rushing touchdowns in 2023 led the nation. While Corum’s legacy on the field is deep, he wants fans to reflect on what he did off the field as well.

“Michigan, please don’t remember me for scoring 59 touchdowns and breaking long runs, but remember me as a Michigan man who made a difference on and off the field,” Corum said.

Michigan fans will remember how Corum donated Thanksgiving dinners the past two years to families in need, they’ll remember his toy drive last month that packed a mall to the brim and led to multiple semi trucks full of toys being donated to kids that needed something for the holidays. Blake Corum is a Michigan legend all around and we here at Maize n Brew are excited to see what he’s able to accomplish in the pros. Best of luck, Blake!
