Fournette plays against tougher competition and didn't have Collins to run behind.
competition is no different really between 3a and 4a.
Fournette ran behind 2 guys that are at LSU now.
There haven't been a whole lot of 3 year hype machines that have panned out the way he projects too, though. Guys like Randall Mackey, DJ Banks, Chaz Washington, etc. got tons of pub early on in their careers but never became elite prospects. Fournette keeps getting more and more impressive.
Im not taking about this shitty players. Im talking on a national level more so.
Kenny Hilliard would be a good example, had he had a SR year like he did as a JR (2500 yards 32 TDS) he probably would have been a 5star top 3 RB in the nation. Instead he was hurt and ran for 1800 yards. Do you remember the hype Hilliard had coming up the ranks?
Im not trying to slight LF, he is awesome
Jeremy Hill for instance ran for 2,200 yards as a SR with 36 TDS
those 3 RBS are really not any better than the others. Evaluate them for what they are. Dont get too caught up in the rankings or the hype.
