Coming into Thursday’s Under Armour Game, LSU hoped for a five for five sundae–with the cherry on top being the pickup of the nation’s top overall prospect, Leonard Fournette.

Well, the Tigers didn’t get the complete sundae, but they got the cherry of this year’s class when Fournette declared for LSU on national television. He also was seriously considering Alabama and Texas.

Just moments after scoring a touchdown on a 36-yard pass from Auburn QB recruit Sean White, Fournette stepped up and let LSU fans exhale a little bit when he quickly popped an LSU ballcap on top of his head.

“I’m going to take my talents to … LSU,” Fournette said during the announcement.

  1. With as many yards as Jeremy Hill racked up this year, I’m excited to see Fournette in this offense…

  2. He saw Derrick Henry, the Bama running back, and knew he would ride the pine in Tuscaloosa.
