Jim Harbaugh tabs key group of Michigan players as 'tone setters' in fall camp
Jim Harbaugh addressed what he’s seeing so far in fall camp for the Wolverines following Wednesday’s practice.
Michigan set a pretty good tone in 2021. The Wolverines won 12 games and a B1G Championship en route to the College Football Playoff. Michigan finished its successful season 3rd in the final AP Poll.
Harbaugh is looking for more of the same in 2022. On Wednesday, he addressed a group of players he sees as “tone setters” so far in fall camp.

Harbaugh is looking for “tone setters” right now. Different ways to do it but really looking for guys to step up in that regard. Named Corum, the QBs, Donovan Edwards, Erick All, Cornelius Johnson, Mike Morris, Mazi, Kolesar, Moten, Sainristil and a couple others as doing it.

Blake Corum is first mentioned here. The 5-foot-8 running back ran for 952 yards and 11 touchdowns last season. Corum will be a key factor in the backfield with Hassan Haskins in the NFL. Haskins rushed for 1,327 yards and 20 touchdowns and was a First-Team All-B1G Selection.
Tailback Donovan Edwards is also mentioned in the mix. Edwards had 35 carries for 174 yards and 3 touchdowns last season.
Michigan will also need a tone-setter at quarterback. The question is who will start for the Wolverines under center?
Cade McNamara and J.J. McCarthy are currently in competition for the job, a topic Harbaugh updated during his press conference. That decision might reflect on how Michigan’s 2022 season will go.
