08:19 AM ET 03.12 | Is timing everything? Alabama is hopeful of luring the nation's top running back prospect, Leonard Fournette of New Orleans-St. Augustine, out of Louisiana and away from LSU. But first, they've got to get him to Tuscaloosa for a visit. Last week, Fournette canceled a planned trip to Tuscaloosa due to track and field obligations. This week, Rivals.com's Andrew Bone tweeted that Fournette, who ran for 2,136 yards and 31 touchdowns last season, will again skip a visit to Alabama in order to participate in the Rivals Camp in Houston. Fournette (6-1, 225), listed as the top running back prospect in the nation by both Rivals.com and 247 Sports, lists Alabama and LSU among his favorites.

Snubbing Sabenz isn't good for you. The REC notices stuff like this. 8-/

I think she meant to send that directly to Fournette, of course in the SEC, his salary will be much higher.

It's a negotiating tactic. Hold out for more money.
