Les Miles Thinks Leonard Fournette Needs To Drop Some Weight

LSU may have wrapped up spring camp this past weekend with Saturday's National L Club Spring Football Game, but the work has just begun if the Tigers want to make a splash in 2016. 

There were several takeaways from the spring game, but one stood out above the rest. According to The Advocate's Ross Dellenger, LSU head coach Les Miles believes star running back Leonard Fournette needs to drop some weight.

Here's what Miles had to say:

“Leonard Fournette’s got to trim up,” the coach said. “For him to get the speed he’s capable of, I think he needs to be lighter.”

This is likely more motivation than anything else, but interesting nonetheless.
