ESPN.com Ranks LSU’s Leonard Fournette a Top 100 College Football Player
Before he’s ever even played a college football game, LSU true freshman running back Leonard Fournette has been ranked one of the best players in college football.
ESPN.com has ranked Fournette the 93rd best player in college football.
Fournette was the top recruit in all of high school footbal coming out of his senior season with St. Augustine High School last year. Since then he’s become the first prep athlete to win the Corbett Award as Louisiana’s top amateur athlete.
Of Fournette, ESPN.com says, “Even some in the NFL, after seeing his high school tape, have said he’s talented enough to play in the pros right now.”
So far the rankings have been released through #61. ESPN.com will release 10 more names on the list each week.
Former Haughton QB and current Mississippi State star Dak Prescott was ranked 86th on the list.
No other LSU players have been named to the list thus far.
