Leonard Fournette, the No. 1 recruit in the country, committed to LSU earlier this month.
The 6-foot-1, 226-pounder also considered Alabama and Texas. He officially committed on January 2. "I chose LSU because I felt home there," Fournette said at the time. "I have a great relationship with both coaches, Coach Miles and Coach Frank. ... I was kind of going back and forth, so at the end of the day I prayed on it and I woke up and I felt that LSU was going to be the place for me." Les Miles absolutely needed Fournette's signature, and he got his man. LSU didn't sign a running back in 2013 and recently lost both Jeremy Hill and Alfred Blue early to the NFL. The only thing standing in the way of Fournette starting as a true freshman is Kenny Hilliard. Jan 14 - 11:47 AM
