Michigan vs. Penn State Awards

Let’s see more of this guy on offense . . . Blake Corum. Corum missed most of the Indiana game and the entire Penn State game, leaving the Wolverines to rely heavily on Hassan Haskins. Corum has 130 carries for 778 yards (5.98 yards/carry) and 10 touchdowns. A report came out on Saturday that Corum would miss the next two games, but it’s unclear if that meant he would be out through the Maryland game or the Ohio State game. I’m not expecting Corum to come back this week, but it would be great if he could be back by OSU.

2021 Season Countdown: #87 Rod Moore

Rod Moore

Name: Rod Moore
Height:
5’11”
Weight:
180 lbs.
High school:
Clayton (OH) Northmont
Position:
Safety
Class:
Freshman
Jersey number:
N/A
Last year:
Moore was a senior in high school (LINK). He made 68 tackles, 1 interception, and 6 pass breakups.
TTB Rating:
72

Moore committed to Michigan in the winter of 2020, just before everything got shut down for COVID. Coming from the same high school as defensive end Gabe Newburg and former wide receiver commit Markus Allen, Moore was a somewhat small-ish safety with cornerback skills. There was some fear that Moore would not stick in the class after Allen decommitted in favor of Wisconsin, but the two will play as opponents rather than teammates.

Freshman safeties can play a role on special teams as a freshman, but they’re usually liabilities if they play defense. Not only is Moore inexperienced, but he is very small for an FBS safety. He might be one of those guys who plays on kickoff coverage in a few games, but not enough to burn his redshirt.

Prediction: Redshirt

I haven’t posted a visitors list in a long time, because visitors haven’t been allowed to visit Michigan since last winter. And they’re still not allowed to visit campus, at least not while having any contact with the coaching staff.

But there is a group of recruits who plan to come to Ann Arbor and hang out together on their own.

2021

Raheem Anderson II – C – Detroit (MI) Cass Tech: Anderson is committed to Michigan (LINK).

Andrel Anthony – WR – East Lansing (MI) East Lansing: Anthony is committed to Michigan (LINK).

Tristan Bounds – OT – Wallingford (CT) Choate Rosemary Hall: Bounds is committed to Michigan (LINK).
