Leonard Fournette Addresses Those Questioning His Priorities
By now we all know that the star running back for LSU, Leonard Fournette, will not play in the upcoming Citrus Bowl in Orlando.
Fournette is projected to be a top pick in the 2017 NFL draft and has been battling an ankle injury all season long. With that said, he has elected to not play with the LSU Tigers in the upcoming game.
Fans of college football around the country have been critical of Fournette's decision to not play in the bowl game and it has made for good discussions. However, who are we to question this young man's decision, right?
I think we all know that he has the chance to make a lot of money in the NFL and if he doesn't want to risk it, it's his call to not put himself or his family's well-being in jeopardy.
After hearing both sides of the argument, Fournette recently took to Twitter and slapped back with one photo. And it's quiet clear who and what his priority is as he prepares to turn professional.
LSU may be in Fournette's rear view mirror these days, but he has not been distracted on his future.
