LSU running back Leonard Fournette got the ultimate compliment from Herschel Walker, who told TMZ Sports he thinks Fournette is a better college running back than he was back at Georgia.

Walker said he’s been impressed by Fournette, Alabama’s Derrick Henry and Georgia’s Nick Chub, three running backs he said are “bringing back the position.”

Fournette’s dominant start to the season has some asking whether Fournette sit out his junior season so not to risk a pro career. Walker was cool to that idea: “It’s a bad idea to talk about leaving early, just wait and your time will come,” he told TMZ Sports.
