Leonard Fournette’s younger brother Lanard leaves LSU football team

LSU Tigers

Lanard Fournette has not morphed into the star at LSU that his brother was for his three seasons in Baton Rouge, and the younger of the two running backs has decided to leave the team in the middle of the season.

Fournette, who is the younger brother of Jacksonville Jaguars running back Leonard Fournette, has decided he no longer wants to play football. ESPN’s Edward Aschoff reported on Wednesday that Lanard has withdrawn from school at LSU and a source said the 22-year-old “just wants to move on with his life.”

Fournette is a senior and already graduated back in May, so he was only still at LSU to play football. He had just 13 rushing attempts for 36 yards this season and 31 attempts total in his three-plus seasons with the Tigers. He scored two touchdowns in his college career.

Leonard Fournette racked up 3,830 rushing yards and scored 49 touchdowns during his three seasons at LSU, and he went on to become the No. 4 overall pick in the 2017 NFL Draft. We also saw a video of Leonard’s son unloading on another kid in a football drill recently, so there is clearly some serious athleticism all throughout the Fournette family.
