Throw out all the Leonard Fournette endorsements you’ve heard thus far. Herschel Walker’s compliments on Fournette take the cake. The Georgia legend told TMZ Sports on Wednesday that Fournette was already more advanced than he was in college.
“He’s better than I was,” Walker said of Fournette. “He’s like a fullback because he can take punishment and keep going.”
That is some high praise from one of the best collegiate running backs of all time.
The 1982 Heisman Trophy winner said Fournette shouldn’t worry about his pro prospects at this time. He advised Fournette to stay in college rather than leave early for the NFL.
“It’s a bad idea to talk about leaving early, just wait and your time will come.”
