Ben Glicksman with published a great article on Tuesday about incoming LSU freshman Leonard Fournette. Here is a brief portion of the article:

"Pride of New Orleans: The youth and promise of Leonard Fournette"

Fournette, 19, was the top-rated recruit in the class of 2014, according to ESPN and He is the most highly touted LSU signee of all-time and has drawn comparisons to Adrian Peterson for his size, speed and athleticism. Peterson even watched clips of the running back at the Minnesota Vikings' training facility last fall before uttering one word: Wow.

Expectations for Fournette have been lofty since he was a pre-teen. Now, he's ready to live up to them. "Heisman candidate, All-American, national title," he says, pausing between each to achieve his desired effect. He wants to accomplish goals a true freshman never has, feats that would transform him from a high school phenom into a superstar. His normally subtle demeanor becomes animated when imagining the possibilities.

Looking at this guy, I don't see him having to spend any extra time in the weight room. Some trainer has already done a good job with him. I agree that he needs some breathing room to develop and we probably shouldn't set the bar beyond whatever is realistic for this kid. I wish him luck.

I'm not sure how this article set any expectations. He has similar highlight film as AP in HS.

while I am glad to see LSU getting positive press, I think this is a bit much hoopla over a young man who has never taken a snap...

let's give this guy some support and a chance to develop to his fullest potential instead of setting expectations so high that no one could ever achieve them...
