On National Signing Day, the biggest winner so far may be Les Miles and the LSU Tigers. Not only did they receive a commitment live on national television from the top wide receiver in the country in Malachi Dupre, but they now are officially in possession of the best running back recruit since Adrian Peterson as Leonard Fournette has officially sent in his NLI.

After much anticipation, Fournette verbally committed to the home-state Tigers at the Under Armour All-American Game, but as we all know, you can never breathe easy until that letter is sent in, which the Tigers coaching staff can now do.

For the past few years, people have been waiting in anticipation of seeing the talented Fournette at the collegiate level, and fairly soon they will be able to in the LSU offense as he tries to make his mark on not just the SEC, but the entire country.
