LSU capped a fantastic National Signing Day with the signing of Leonard Fournette – the No.1 player in the nation and the No.1 running back.

Fournette, a running back from New Orleans, was always relaxed about signing for LSU, wearing school clothing even before class to relax the worried Tiger faithful.

Such was his size, Fournette’s press conference got some on Twitter saying: “You can’t tell me [he’s] an 18-year old man”.

But before that, WR Malachi Dupre from John Curtis – the country’s No.1 wide receiver, also declared that he was going to be a Tiger and “bring a National Championship back to the State”. Dupre was joined by four-star WR Trey Quinn.

Les Miles’ defense was also added to with the pick-ups of defensive tackle Travonte Valentine and DE Deondre Clark – despite the latter’s mother begging him to go to Oklahoma and stay in-state. Miles also beat Ole Miss to the signature of Davon Godchaux, who allegedly wanted to play in Oxford but his family wanted to play in Baton Rouge. Les Miles obviously makes Mom feel like the Queen Of The World.

One of the more ‘Les Miles’ moments of the whole day was when five-star cornerback¬†Adoree Jackson‘s profile was put up on LSU’s website. Jackson went to USC. Florida and UCLA also came second in the Jackson stakes.

Overall, Miles signed 21 recruits and was No.2 overall in the National Recruiting Rankings.
