Shaquille O’Neal is a former superstar basketball player of the LSU Tigers and in the NBA. He is certainly one of the best players to ever slip on a basketball uniform in Tigers’ history. The same can be said for current LSU running back Leonard Fournette on the football field.
According to College Spun, Shaq has joined many of the football analysts that have said Fournette is the clear favorite for the Heisman Trophy. Diesel went a little above the rest by actually saying that Fournette WILL win the prestigious award this year.

The Heisman ceremony is still three months away, but I don’t think too many would disagree with Shaq’s prediction. If Fournette continues to play he is right now, there’s no doubt that Fournette will be taking home the trophy.
