One of the top prospects coming out of college for the NFL draft signed with an agency.
Penn State Nittany Lion Saquon Barkley has signed with Jay-Z’s entertainment agency Roc Nation in anticipation of the draft.
Barkley is one of the top-rated players coming out, and this is a big boon for an agency that already has many great players under their belt. Kevin Durant, Dez Bryant, CC Sabathia, Ndamukong Suh and Yoenis Cespedes are all represented by Roc Nation.

Out of the current running backs in the NFL, Barkley becomes the fourth player to sign with Roc Nation. Todd Gurley, CJ Prosise, and Leonard Fournette are all currently represented.
Barkley set many school records while at Penn State including becoming their all-time leading rusher. Many draft analysts have him as the top-ranked running back and an all but guaranteed first-round pick.
“We think he’s the best player in this draft, and we’re thrilled he became part of our family,” agent Kim Miale, who will represent Barkley, told ESPN.
