The Michigan football program has put together a couple of strong season in the Big Ten over the past 2 years.
They have won back to back conference titles and made appearances in the last two College Football Playoffs.
A lot of that success was thanks to a strong run game.
With Hassan Haskins and Blake Corum in the backfield, the Wolverines were able to overpower Ohio State in big matchups late in those two seasons.
Michigan will still have Corum leading the backfield for another season and now they may already secured Corum’s replacement.
According to On 3 Sports’ Hayes Fawcett, 4-star running back Jordan Marshall has committed to the Wolverines.

The decision is one that might not be so popular with some of the people close to Marshall. Marshall plays high school football in Ohio, so his dad and some of his friends are Ohio State fans.
It’s going to be crazy. Some of my friends are big OState fans, so is my papa. But he is going to start rooting for Michigan. I’m excited to play those guys. Just know after Blake and Donovan leave, just know that we are coming back to run that ball!
Ohio State had made Marshall an offer and he also picked Michigan over Tennessee and Wisconsin.
Marshall is the first top 100 recruit that Michigan has gotten a commitment from since 2013.
With this signing, Michigan currently has the 5th best recruiting class for 2024.
If Marshall can keep up the high level of play from Michigan’s rushing attack, they could be a tough team to start for a long time.
