In the first year of the NIL deals in collegiate sports, there has been many great deals and uses of the profit of their image and likeness. There have been players like Michigan running back Blake Corum, who used his profit from NIL deals to give to people, who are less fortunate.

Corum has a big Christmas giving spirit as he has used his NIL money to purchase holiday gift bags for children in Detroit.

He has also read to 4-to-8 eight-year-old children at churches. He has a passion for speaking with children and giving reasons to dream and reach for their goals.

Corum had a spirit of giving and cheer during Thanksgiving as he used his NIL deals to pay for Thanksgiving turkeys to families in need in two Ypsilanti communities.

Corum has had a fantastic season on the field as he has rushed for 939 yards and 11 touchdowns on 141 carries. Corum and No. 2 Michigan will be playing in their first College Football Playoff on New Year’s Eve in the Orange Bowl against No. 3 Georgia.

What an incredible use of NIL money from the Michigan running back during the holiday season.
