Jay Z’s, Roc Nation, sports agency has been selected by Penn State’s Saquon Barkley to represent him as his agent.
Barkley becomes another high profile running back to sign with Jay Z’s Roc Nation Sports. If recall last season, Jaguars Leonard Fournette signed with Jay Z’s Roc Nation as well.

Barkley said that the reason he chose Roc Nation over all other agencies was because Roc Nation does not have so many athletes they are representing. Roc Nation has a family feel to their agency. Roc Nation is also very selective on the guys they represent, and they do a very good job of representing their clients.

Barkley had a very successful Penn State career, rushing for more than 3500 yards on just 671 attempts and getting to the end-zone 43 times. Barkley will most likely be the first running back taken in the 2018 NFL Draft.
