Video: Leonard Fournette featured on Sport Science

LSU running back Leonard Fournette is very good and very fast. Some people may be asking: “exactly how fast is Fournette?”

ESPN decided to take into their Sport Science lab and find out. John Brenkus discussed Fournette’s cut speed, which was similar to Minnesota Vikings’ running back Adrian Peterson’s.

See for yourself just how good this man is.

There is a reason why people have been calling Fournette he best running back prospect since Peterson. Fournette can’t leave college until after next season, but there is no reason why he wouldn’t be one of the most sought-after talents for the 2017 NFL Draft.

Fournette and the Tigers take on the Florida Gators on Saturday. The game is scheduled to kick off at 7 p.m. and will air on ESPN.
