Joel Klatt might be a fan of Ohio State’s C.J. Stroud and Tennessee’s Hendon Hooker when it comes to the Heisman race. And while the attention should be on both passers, there’s another B1G talent making a splash in the race for college football’s top award.

Klatt praised the work ethic and consistency of Michigan running back Blake Corum during a recent segment on ‘Breaking the Huddle’ when discussing the Heisman favorites. No surprise, the FOX Sports analyst has Stroud and Hooker as the top 2 candidates. Coming in at No. 3, however, was Corum.

“When everything is perfect and the offensive line does their job, he’s taking it to the house. When nothing is perfect he can still give you an explosive play,” Klatt said. “That’s why Blake Corum is No. 3 on my list right now.”

Corum continues to be one of the nation’s top runners this season. In 4 B1G games, the junior has rushed for at least 124 yards and averaged over 25 carries. Of his FBS-leading 13 rushing touchdowns, 6 have come against conference opponents.

Through 6 games, Corum is 2nd among all FBS players in rushing yards (901), 6th in rush attempts (146), and 6th in average yards per game (128.7). Illinois’ Chase Brown currently leads the FBS in rushing yards at 1,059.

Other names on Klatt’s radar include UCLA quarterback Dorian Thompson-Robinson, USC quarterback Caleb Williams and Alabama quarterback Bryce Young. The Wolverines will return to the gridiron next weekend to take on in-state rival Michigan State at home.
