Perhaps the No. 1 player in the country, 5-star running back Leonard Fournette is the top recruit LSU must not let slip away.
The Tigers did not sign a true running-back prospect in their 2013 class, so depth is needed at the position. However, Fournette is more than a "depth-recruit," as he would be ready to carry the load for LSU immediately as a true freshman.
Fournette, who is 6'1" and 226 pounds, has outstanding strength as a runner to go along with a great burst to and through holes, solid agility and impressive speed. He can carry defenders for extra yards after contact while also being capable of making big plays with quickness and athleticism.
Fournette is also a great receiver out of the backfield who should catch a large amount of passes before the end of his college career.
The New Orleans native will sign with LSU or Alabama, according to the experts at 247Sports.
