Les Miles Says There's No Reason For RB Leonard Fournette To Think About Winning The Heisman, Doesn't Want To Compare Him To Anyone

Coming into 2014, you'd be hard pressed to find a freshman who has higher expectations than LSU running back Leonard Fournette. He's a freak of nature who is expected to contribute immediately and has 33/1 odds to win the Heisman Trophy, which you rarely see for a true freshman. For Tigers' head coach Les Miles, these expectations are a bit much, and he doesn't want his star freshman to think about winning the Heisman right now.

That wasn't the only thing Miles said with the hopes of calming everyone down in regards to Fournette. Last month, Miles made headlines for comparing the freshman to NBA legend Michael Jordan. Now, Miles wants everyone to stop comparing Fournette to people, and instead wants compare him only to Leonard Fournette.

We'll see Fournette suit up for LSU for the first time on Aug. 30, when the Tigers take on Wisconsin in Houston, Texas.
