Michigan Wolverines football senior star running back Blake Corum has signed an NIL deal with Greatness Wins, a clothing brand founded by former New York Yankees shortstop Derek Jeter and Untuckit founder Chris Riccobono.
Corum, who rushed for 1,463 yards and 18 touchdowns last season, finishing seventh in Heisman Trophy voting, is the company’s first student-athlete brand ambassador promoting its athletic wear that is considered “premium performance apparel.” Corum was represented by Valiant Management, run by former U-M football player Jared Wangler, in the deal.
The Michigan running back has long been a Jeter fan, making this a full-circle moment.
“After wearing the No. 2 for my whole life because of Derek Jeter, it feels surreal to be working alongside him and the Greatness Wins team in this new chapter, as I head into my last season of college football,” Corum said in a statement.
Michigan hockey defenseman Luke Hughes just finished up the NCAA hockey season with the Wolverines in the Frozen Four, signed his deal with the New Jersey Devils and has already notched a game-winning goal in the NHL. It’s been a whirlwind of a week for the No. 4 overall pick in 2021.
A clip surfaced of former Ohio State head coach Urban Meyer discussing the Buckeyes’ obsession with Michigan. Meyer said he had a coach who solely focused on everything the Wolverines were doing.

Coach Harbaugh and the coaches said they wanted me, and you can see what they mean to us. I committed on my visit, and I stay true to my word.”
