The addition of NIL deals has allowed more freedom for players to use their financial benefits for different uses. For Michigan junior running back Blake Corum, he uses his NIL money to donate Thanksgiving turkeys to people less fortunate in Ypsilanti, Michigan.

This year is Corum’s second year of delivering Thanksgiving turkeys to the community.

Corum was also asked about his knee after missing almost all of the second half of the 19-16 home win over Illinois in Week 12. Corum responded to the Detroit News that he is good and plans to be back.

Corum is having a Heisman Trophy-like performance this season as he has rushed for 1,457 yards and 18 touchdowns on 245 carries. He has 8 games this season where he has rushed for over 100 yards.

No. 3 Michigan is set to go on the road in Week 13 as they take on No. 2 Ohio State in The Game. Michigan will need Corum at 100% or near to potentially win the East division and secure a spot in the B1G Championship.
