LSU senior running back Lanard Fournette has left the team, according to ESPN College Football writer Edward Aschoff.
quote:

Fournette, the younger brother of former LSU star and current Jacksonville Jaguars running back Leonard Fournette, graduated in May and withdrew from school on Wednesday, the source said.

The source said Lanard Fournette "just wants to move on with his life."

Fournette, a senior, carried the ball just 13 times for 36 yards and a touchdown in four games this season. During his four years with the Tigers, Fournette totaled just 162 rushing yards and two touchdowns.

Maybe grad school wasn't working out?

Something is not adding up here. You spend all these years working and leave the team your senior year with one of the greatest offenses in Tiger history. Then you just say fuk it???? It doesn't add up. Unless..... He was looking at suspension.

Good luck to the kid but let's be honest, he was only here because of his brother.

Best of luck in the future. Congratulations on getting your degree and graduating last May.

his degree is in Sports Administration, which is the major of the vast majority of football players at LSU. Now look, graduating in any major is an accomplishment that I applaud, but let's be real and know that this isn't a rigorous major like pre-med, engineering, mathematics, accounting, etc. with many, many job opportunities open to those graduates.

Wish him the best. There's no shame in this. The guy is a good athlete. A lot of good athletes aren't quite SEC good. But he's no chump and he never complained or made an arse of himself

Very proud that he graduated LSU. Living in your brothers footsteps is not an easy thing to do. I appreciate the Fournette family for their contributions to LSU. Good luck, Lanard! You will always be a Tiger!

The kid worked hard, contributed and got his degree. Can’t ask for more from any young man. Wish he would have finished out what has the potential to be a special season, however, while this is a decision I don’t understand, it’s one I can definitely respect.

Tough deal, but LSU has some big games coming up and the 5-star Freshmen are simply on another level. I just hope Curry doesn't follow suit, because he's been passed up, too.
