Michigan State football’s four-star running back commit Audric Estime put up some video game-like numbers for his high school this week.

Mel Tucker knew he got a good one when Audric Estime committed to the Spartans last month. The New Jersey-native joined fellow four-star teammate Geno VanDeMark in committing to Michigan State’s 2021 recruiting class and both will be huge pieces for the future.

On Saturday, he proved just how big of an addition he was to the Spartans’ 2021 class in his season opener for St. Joe’s.

The senior running back pieced together a monster game, rushing 18 times for 175 yards and three touchdowns, keeping his team in the game against Bergen Catholic. In fact, he accounted for his team’s only scores and he was tough to bring down all afternoon.

Estime is known for his 6-foot-1.5, 215-pound muscular frame which looks like something out of a video game, but he flashed that speed in his season opener, bolting for an 80-yard touchdown in the first half to put St. Joe’s on the board.

Estime added two more touchdowns and approached the 200-yard mark for the game as he was blowing by, through and around defenders. He showcased his speed on that 80-yard run and if you didn’t know by now, he’s the total package.

Speaking of total package, take a look at this incredible defensive play for Estime, recording a sack after entering the game as a stand-up end.

This kid is an athlete.

Michigan State won’t have a shortage of talented running backs for the foreseeable future and the ‘pound, green, pound’ mentality looks to be on its way back to East Lansing.
