It's nearly impossible not to be wowed by LSU Tigers running back Leonard Fournette's incredible start to his sophomore season. In just five games, Fournette has rushed for a whopping 1,022 yards and 12 touchdowns.

He leads the FBS in rushing yards and he's played in one less game than most teams have. Additionally, the Heisman Trophy appears to be his to lose.

One person who's taken notice of Fournette's incredible numbers is former LSU Tiger wideout, Jarvis Landry.

“He’s a man playing with boys out there,” Landry said via James Walker of ESPN. “I’m convinced now. I’m definitely convinced.”

Landry didn't get a chance to play alongside Fournette as he left for the NFL one year prior to the running back's arrival at LSU, but it's easy to see why Landry is impressed — LSU alum or not.
