Blake Corum is still working on his rehab process with the 2023 season and Michigan’s fall camp now right around the corner. Fortunately, the star running back for the Wolverines is feeling great after his dynamic 2022 season was cut short.

Corum was recently interviewed by Aaron McMann of while hosting a free youth football camp at Detroit Catholic Central High School. During that interview, Corum discussed how he is feeling with an overwhelmingly positive update.

“To be honest, I’m feeling better than ever,” said Corum from his camp. “This is the strongest I’ve ever been. Now, it’s just the get-back.”

Corum did admit he’s not fully back to 100% but would estimate he’s at about 90% entering July. He does anticipate being a full-go when camp rolls around.

“I wouldn’t say I’m 100 percent — probably 90 — but I’m so close,” said Corum. “It’s crazy; I’m feeling great.”

As for the 2023 season, Corum says he is thinking about what the first hit back during game action will be like. He does believe he’s developed the rest of his lower body throughout his rehab process to sustain the blows of a B1G football season.

“I think about it all the time, what that first, initial hit is going to be like,” Corum explained. “A lot of guys go low, so just making sure everything supporting my knee is great. Like I said, I’m stronger than ever — my quads, my hamstring, my calves, shins — everything is strong enough to support and be durable.”

Blake Corum’s 2023 outlook

If Corum can find a portion of the success he experienced a year ago, Michigan’s offense will be in line for another dominant season. Corum finished the 2022 season with 1,463 rushing yards and 18 touchdowns while averaging 5.9 yards per carry.

With Donovan Edwards also returning to the backfield, the Wolverines have the firepower to alternate in the backfield while keeping guys fresh if needed. Combine that backfield with another year of development for QB JJ McCarthy, and Michigan could be in store for a truly special performance during the 2023 season.
