On Monday, the Walter Camp Foundation released their preseason All-America teams for 2022, and the Michigan Wolverines had three players were recognized.
One of those players was last year’s Lou Groza Award winning kicker, Jake Moody, who was one of the 10 players recognized from previous years. Moody was named as the 2022 First Team kicker for 2022.
Michigan’s other two players were named to the 2022 Second Team offense — running back Blake Corum and grad transfer center Olusegun Oluwatimi. Corum will assume the starting running back duties with Hassan Haskins now in the NFL. Oluwatimi, meanwhile, will start at the center position with Andrew Vastardis also moving on.
