The Notre Dame Fighting Irish have a roster full of players, and we want to talk about them all. One Foot Down’s player profile series will, once again, take a look at every single one of them, and hopefully we all learn a little bit more about these guys, and Notre Dame’s chances for the upcoming 2021 season.
#24 Audric Estime, RB
Audric Estime comes to Notre Dame from New Jersey and St. Joseph Regional High School. He was a 4-star recruit that committed to the Irish in December 2020. The kicker here in Notre Dame’s favor is that Estime was committed to Michigan State since September 2020, but he flipped his commitment. Estime is 6’1” and 215, and he looks like he will be a huge asset, both in the backfield but also as a physical presence.
Restaurant That Fits
I am not from where Wegmans locations are everywhere, but those that I know that are from those areas, this grocery store/cafe is pretty bomb. It looks like they have great deli selections. There is a Wegmans in Montvale, NJ where Estime’s high school was located. He also is one that I think would power through a couple of sandwiches from the cafe/deli there.
Audric Estime was an incredibly solid pickup at running back by Coach Lance Taylor. This is especially true when Estime flipped to Notre Dame from Michigan State. He has incredible size, and he will need to work to get in his reps as he falls behind Kyren Williams, C’Bo Flemister, and Chris Tyree among others. However, he has some high praise and high hopes for the future at running back at Notre Dame. Our very own Supreme Warlord and Site Manager Joshua claims that Estime reminds him of someone kind of famous and good at the running back position.
Joshua also referencing here that TJ Duckett chose Michigan State over Notre Dame when he was recruited in the 1990s. I don’t think any Notre Dame fan would hate a guy with similar skills and prowess to TJ Duckett in the backfield for the next four years.
