Michigan Wolverines running back Blake Corum has announced his decision to turn pro. He was one of two significant players to turn pro on Sunday.

Quarterback J.J. McCarthy also turned pro on Sunday. McCarthy spent three seasons with the Wolverines.

McCarthy is projected to be a first-round draft pick. Many mock drafts have Corum as a Day 2 draft pick.

Corum spent the last four seasons at Michigan. He flirted with the NFL last season before ultimately returning to Ann Arbor, Michigan for another season.

This could be a mass exodus for the Wolverines. Defensive lineman Kris Jenkins has already turned pro.

Usually, there will be more turnover with more players declaring for the draft and leaving for the transfer portal.

Head coach Jim Harbaugh is expected to meet with the Los Angeles Chargers this coming week. While Harbaugh will meet with Chargers — and potentially other teams with openings — the Wolverines want to sign him to an extension.

If Harbaugh leaves for the NFL, Offensive Coordinator Sherrone Moore would likely be promoted to head coach. Moore served as the Wolverines interim head coach for four games during Harbaugh’s two three-game suspensions this season.

Corum had 258 carries for 1,245 yards and 27 touchdowns this season. He also had 16 receptions for 117 yards and a touchdown.

In his final game in the College Football Playoff National Championship game against the Washington Huskies, he had 21 carries. Corum had 134 rushing yards and two touchdowns.
