Michigan All-America RB Blake Corum returning for senior year 2:52 PM ET Associated Press ANN ARBOR, Mich. -- Michigan All-America running back Blake Corum is staying in school for his senior season and putting his NFL dreams on hold. Corum announced his decision on Monday, hours before the national championship game, writing that he had "unfinished business." He had a season-ending left knee injury against Illinois on Nov. 19 after running for 1,463 yards and 18 touchdowns. Corum had 952 yards rushing and 11 touchdowns as a sophomore in 2021. The second-ranked Wolverines lost to third-ranked TCU in a College Football Playoff semifinal without Corum in the lineup. The 5-foot-8, 210-pound Corum, who is from Marshall, Virginia, will return along with quarterback J.J. McCarthy to lead Michigan with or without coach Jim Harbaugh. Harbaugh has drawn interests from NFL teams while the NCAA is looking into potential rules infractions in the Wolverines' football program.
