COLLEGE STATION, Texas — You better be ready to tackle LSU freshman Leonard Fournette when he's coming at you full speed.
Texas A&M defensive back Howard Matthews learned that the hard way Thursday, landing on the wrong end of another edition to the Fournette highlight reel. The five-star freshman took a handoff, cut left and smashed directly into Matthews.
Matthews didn't have much success, being knocked straight on his rear by the 230-pound Fournette. Les Miles offered up his advice on what to do when presented with a chance at tackling Fournette.
“I would get out of the way if Leonard was running at me," Miles said.
And that wasn't Fournette's only big run against the Aggies. He finished the game with a career-high 146 yards and one remarkable touchdown..
But it was the big hit that people will be talking about, and you can check out the video courtesy of Scout's P.D. Starr and Bleacher Report's Barrett Sallee.
