Everyone, Michigan football fans included, can't wait for the release of EA Sports College Football 25. The Wolverines confirmed that they will be in the game along with all of the other FBS programs.

Michigan football fans also got some good news on Thursday as Will Johnson was announced as one of the players who signed an NIL deal with EA Sports to promote the game. It also means that Johnson, a former five-star cornerback and the national title game MVP, will be playing for Michigan football next season, despite baseless rumores to the contrary.

I can't wait to play with Will Johnson and dudes like Mason Graham and Kenneth Grant. I love using a shutdown corner, as well as a beastly defensive tackle. But Michigan football's second confirmed player on the game is running back Donovan Edwards.

Edwards is a former five-star recruit according to the 247 Sports recruiting rankings for the 2022 class and he's lived up to that ranking. Whether it was long touchdown runs against Ohio State, winning the MVP of the Big Ten championship game, or scoring two 40-yard touchdowns in the national championship game, Edwards' Michigan football legacy is secure.

Yet, he's coming back for another season so he won't have to play second fiddle to Blake Corum, who in my opinion, is the greatest running back in U-M history. Edwards can have his chance to shine and be the focal point of the offense.

Kalel Mullings will also see plenty of carries, but it will be interesting to see what Edwards can do with around 20 touches per game. I know Edwards won't be under-utilized when I play with Michigan football on the game and my hope is that he unlock his full potential in real life too.
