Not only will Leonard Fournette be leaving LSU for the NFL having made his mark in the school’s record book, he apparently will be heading into the pros with a nice collection of watches.

On Friday evening, Leonard Fournette tweeted out a photo of the latest addition to his collection.

Because I, too, am a sub-$100 watch guy, I had to do a basic search to see what a piece like this would run. This appears to be one of Rolex’s Day-Date Series and, minus the diamond additions, would retail for around $55,000. Add the diamonds and this would be in the price point of $60-65,000.

According to, annual college expenses for those attending LSU is somewhere in the ballpark of around $29,000. Because Fournette was on scholarship for his two and a half years at LSU, a rough estimate of $72,500 in college expenses, would be more expensive than his new watch, but only barely.

No one ever claimed to be “on fleek” with a a responsible purchase like a college education.

Apparently, this isn’t the only time piece in Fournette’s collection. Last month, TMZ reported he became the owner of a more icy Rolex. This could have been a gift from his new agent, Jay Z, who runs the agency Roc Nation Sports.

While the Jay Z watch has more diamonds, the latest Rolex is so fresh, it has revamped the Roman numeral system. The tried and true IV is now IIII. Now that’s fleek, I think.
