Michigan Wolverines head coach Jim Harbaugh provided a significant update on star running back Blake Corum.

Corum sustained an injury that banged him up towards the end of Michigan’s spectacular 2022 season. He attempted to play against rival Ohio State, but couldn’t contribute what he desired. Still, Michigan went on to bulldoze the Buckeyes even without him. But the truth is Corum is as crucial a player on the Michigan roster and he returned to school to the surprise of many.

Harbaugh dished out an update on Corum and his status on Thursday. There was both good news and bad. The bad news is that Corum won’t participate in spring activities. The good news, though, is that according to Harbaugh, he should be a “full go” by June.

Anthony Broome of On3Sports tweeted, “Blake Corum is not participating in drills this spring, but is still working out and keeping up with strength and conditioning. Harbaugh says they expect him to be a full go sometime around June.”

Corum’s 2022 season was historic. The Wolverines running back finished with marks that slot him in the Top 10 all-time in single-season rushing yards (1,463) and touchdowns (18). He somehow missed out on a Heisman Trophy invite to New York despite that and his team’s bountiful success. He’ll have a chance to get to New York again in 2023, and it sounds like he’ll be ready to rock and roll.

The CFB world reacted to the significant update.

One Michigan-area reporter cited this as the exact reason he came back.

A Wolverines fan was very pleased about the news.

Another Michigan fan was also pleased about the developments.

And finally, another Michigan fan hoped that they would protect him.
