Again I have not spoke to Nick directly but I still think he goes elsewhere for a variety of reasons.
You seem to keep repeating the only reason is Fournette/competition.
Which still makes no sense for the number of reasons already mentioned in this thread:
1. Texas will have a lot more RBs than LSU will. Including two upper classmen who he would not beat out as a freshman.
2. We have constantly, ALWAYS had a rotation of backs, for 10 years running that will not change. Sure sometimes we have a feautre back, but they never have something crazy like 300 carries. Hilliard has been a backup every year here and will leave with around 300 carries. Magee has been a backup and likely the starter this year and will leave with 200-250 carries. You come to LSU as a RB, you will get your chances, and plenty of them.
3. If Brosette is so concerned about the NFL he would look no further than Charlie Strong sending just 1 RB to the NFL in 4 years at UL vs. Les Miles sending 4 RBs to the NFL in the the last 4 years at LSU. Or how about 6 RBs in the last 5 years? How about a total of 9 in his 9 seasons here? Miles runs an offense that caters to RBs and every single one of him he has. He wont run you out and puts you in at least some chance to be drafted by an NFL team.
