Blake Corum uses NIL money to hand out hundreds of Thanksgiving turkeys
Blake Corum is using his NIL money for good this holiday season.
The star running back purchased 600 Thanksgiving turkeys and distributed them in Ypsilanti, MI. This is the 3rd consecutive year that the running back has done this for Thanksgiving.

Corum is 2nd in the B1G in rushing yards with 888. The back is only behind Rutgers RB Kyle Monangai. The Michigan back also leads all running backs in the nation with 20 touchdowns. Corum and fellow back Donovan Edwards have combined to form the best 1-2 punch at RB in the nation.
In 2022, Corum received First-team All-Big Ten honors, and likely would have been a Heisman finalist if not for a season-ending injury.
Corum’s dominance is a big reason why the Michigan Wolverines have remained perfect in 2023. The team improved to 11-0 on Saturday after getting by the Maryland Terrapins. The Wolverines will now have to get past the Ohio State Buckeyes to remain alive for the College Football Playoffs.
