LSU's Fournette has lofty goals for 2014

Sunday was LSU media day and the first opportunity for reporters to speak with members of the Tigers second ranked recruiting class.

True freshman quarterback Brandon Harris is battling with sophomore Anthony Jennings for a starting spot.  A decision on who will start the season opener is not expected anytime soon.

Even Harris admits there's not much separating himself from Jennings.
"He's a guy who can run, just like I can run," Harris said. "He's a guy who can throw, just like I can throw. I don't know anything that may separate us from each other."
Most of the hype with this freshmen class is centered around running back Leonard Fournette. The former St. Aug star has high expectations for his first season.
"For my freshman year, 1,000 yard rusher, All-American, All-SEC and hopefully a Heisman candidate," Fournette said.
Another young  player on offense is Malachi Dupre. The former John Curtis standout says offensive coordinator Cam Cameron has them believing they can have a good season, despite the youth at the skill positions.
"When a guy like Coach Cam tells you we have special abilities, and we will be special, you believe it; and you also buy into because of his past," Dupre said.
