Leonard Fournette told founder Eric Richey in October that his choice of colleges would have to feel like home.

Citing his relationship with recruiter/running backs coach Frank Wilson and his desire to stay close to home, Leonard Fournette has made a verbal commitment to LSU. Having narrowed his choices to Alabama, LSU, and Texas Fournette made his announcmenet during the 4th quarter of the Under Armour All-American game which was broadcast live on ESPN.

The St. Augustine product was a four-year sensation and was the number one ranked recruit in the country.

Mike Nabors conducted a 1-on-1 interview with Fournette for moments after the decision was announced. That interview will be posted later this evening.
