Roc Nation Sports just landed another stud athlete.
Now former Penn State superstar RB Saquon Barkley has signed with Jay-Z's agency.
Barkley is perceived as a top-five pick in the 2018 NFL draft. The only Penn State player and the only Big Ten running back to ever win Big Ten Offensive Player of the Year twice, Barkley capped a magical 2017-18 season with 175 yards from scrimmage and two TDs in Penn State's 35-28 win over Washington in the Fiesta Bowl.

Barkley rushed for 1,271 yards this season, averaging 5.9 per carry. He scored 21 total touchdowns and added 632 yards receiving. If that wasn't enough, he also returned two kicks for touchdowns.
Barkley is the most intriguing running back prospect to come out since Ezekiel Elliott in 2016. Zeke went fourth overall and Barkley has a chance to go even higher.
