Leonard Fournette graces cover of Sports Illustrated

LSU running back Leonard Fournette has been garnering attention all season long. Whether it be from college football analysts or former legendary running backs, Fournette is certainly the most talked about player today.

He now has another reason to be talked about even more this week. Fournette will be featured on the cover of this week’s Sports Illustrated magazine.

The issue compares Fournette to legends like Earl Campbell, Bo Jackson, and Herschel Walker, who has already claimed that Fournette was better than he was. That is surely going to be an issue to check out this week.

Fournette and the Tigers host the Florida Gators this week and it’s going to be a tough game for both. Hopefully, Fournette doesn’t let this attention get the best of him and he just goes out and plays his game.
