Fournette reminds me of a larger Reggie Bush
You're just like all the other Vol fans. Dang. I had high hopes for you.
BornToBeRed said: WPS, just a head's up. We might be the most family-friendly board on the network, so take it easy on your normal wps-ness.
Fournette reminds me of a 1.5 inch taller, more level headed Bryce Brown. Dude is going to take LSU's offense to the next level.
Of course I'm biased but the stats don't lie....JH will be a monster.
I second this.
That kid going to ND is pretty good also.
I'll take it a couple steps further and say Adrian Peterson. Same exact build maybe even a little thicker. Dude is an incredible.

They HAVE to get a great quarterback first for that to happen and that's what there offense has been missing for years. You give them one of the best qb's in the nation and I believe they will.

I honestly think LF is in a league of his own. And I think Cook, Mixon, Michel, Hurd, Roc, and Chubb are all in the same boat.
The freshman Qb they have is supposedly the tits.
Elijah Hood, ran a 4.48 at over 220lbs.
That's it. I think he is in the top 3 or 4 for RB's in this class.
The measurables and production are there, just not sure how good his HS competition is. I hope he turns out to be a beast though, like most others I have LF a distant #1 and then 4 or 5 guys I'd be very happy with out of a hat.
Bunch of great ones. LF is, hands down, the best.
Then that next tier includes Chubb, Hood, Mixon, Cook & Thomas.
Then Hurd, Yearby, Michel and so on.
Is Curtis Samuel gonna play RB for the Buckeyes?
Great running back class with the best hands down being Hurd followed by Fournette and the guy going to ND then after that there is a significant drop off
Our Butch is an awesome Butch he reigns from Knoxville with Jalen Hurd on the way our Butch is an awesome Butch
Our quarterback does front flips, suck it.
Fournette is a stud... next I like Cook, Dixon, Yearby and a guy who I thinks very underrated is Dontae-Thomas Williams out of durham, NC
I think Royce Freeman has to be in this conversation. Weighed in at 227 lbs at The Opening, and was the 3 best sparq rating for a RB. He had a 4.56 40, the fastest shuttle time of all RB and is a physical speciman, read all the threads every analyst will say the same. Over 2000+ yards and 30+ TD last 2 seasons. Most underrated back
Fournette is good really good dont get me wrong, but I didnt see anything special to be the #1 recruit and #1 RB. He is in the top no doubt, he is like Cornwell in my opinion good, but nothing special to be that #1. LF came in at 226 lbs not 230lbs like he is listed and his times were not that impressive. Maybe I am being critical but I just thought coming in lighter we would see some impressive times.
Chubb needs to be in the conversation and it is good to see that he already is. This kid tested out off the charts.
Mixon is flashy very entertaining to watch. I have been saying it all along that I think he can do more damage at WR, especially in the slot. Which is why he is hands down the most versatile back. 6'2 206 that is a tough matchup for a LB to cover hes got to much speed and body control, and he can out muscle corners.
It is hard to rate them but I would say a top 5 in no particluar order because they could all be number 1 is
Fournette, Mixon, Freeman, Hood, Chubb.
Thomas, Hurd, Cook, Yearby all of these guys can be there its that good of a class.

Like most college teams, the backup QB is always the most popular guy on the roster. I think people will be pleasantly surprised by Mett this year under Cameron. I'd expect a 3,000 yards, 20 TD/8 INT type of year from Mett under Cameron. He put together a few impressive starts late in the season, and with an experienced and sharp OC, it should elevate our QB position.
But yes, Fournette will be huge for LSU. We've had some pretty stout RBs in the last few years (Ridley, Hill, Hilliard, Blue, Ware), but LF could probably start for us now. He's a guy that could come in and rush for 1,000+ yards as a freshman.
