Tuesday afternoon, fifth-year senior running back Jarek Broussard officially declared for the 2023 NFL Draft via Twitter. 

Thanks to the COVID-19 season, Broussard technically had one final year of eligibility, despite his status as a fifth-year.

A majority of Broussard’s collegiate career was spent in Boulder. After graduating from Colorado, he entered the transfer portal and decided to take his talents to East Lansing. 

Broussard amassed 298 rushing yards and three touchdowns in his lone year at Michigan State. His career-high in green and white was 81 rushing yards against Akron.

At the beginning of the season, Broussard split carries with redshirt sophomore running back Jalen Berger in the backfield. However, as the season progressed, Berger shouldered a majority of the load alongside redshirt senior running back Elijah Collins.
