LSU sophomore running back Leonard Fournette was selected by NFL.com College Football Writer Mike Huguenin as one of his top 15 Heisman Trophy candidates for the 2015 season.

6. Leonard Fournette, RB, LSU
Particulars: 6-1, 230, sophomore

The skinny: Fournette is from New Orleans, and a popular saying there (and in all of Louisiana, actually) is "Laissez les bons temps rouler!" That's a Cajun expression meaning "Let the good times roll!" For LSU this season, the offense's motto should be "Laissez Fournette rouler!" Fournette shared carries last season as a true freshman with two other tailbacks and the quarterback, but still led the Tigers with 1,034 rushing yards. He'll likely share carries again, but it's not a stretch to think he could get 235 or so attempts, which could mean around 1,500 yards. (Just think what he could do if LSU had a passing attack to loosen up opposing defenses.) Fournette is both physical and fast.
Georgia running back Nick Chubb and Mississippi State quarterback Dak Prescott landed on Huguenin's list just above Fournette.

Las Vegas has Fournette coming in 2nd Place. I think all the guys at Ohio State will cancel each other out.
