Jay Z Signs Former Georgia Bulldogs Running Back Todd Gurley to Roc Nation Sports
Just days after boxer Adrien Broner refused Jay Z's offer to join Roc Nation Sports, another superstar athlete has been added to the roster.
According to TMZ, former Georgia Bulldogs running back Todd Gurley just inked a deal with Hov's sports management company, although the numbers surrounding the contract are under wraps.
Despite being in hot water for selling autographs -- a clear no-no within NCAA guidelines -- Gurley is still expected to be a first round draft pick for the 2015/2016 NFL season.
The 6-foot, 1-inch, 236-pound Baltimore native finished the 2014 college football season with 911 total yards rushed and nine touchdowns. It seems that if it wasn't for a four-game suspension, Gurley would have been a clear front-runner for the Heisman Trophy, which was given to University of Oregon quarterback Marcus Mariota.
Gurley's signing comes just days after Jay signed boxer Andre Ward to Roc Nation Sports. Athletes like Oklahoma City Thunder basketball player Kevin Durant, Dallas Cowboys wide receiver Dez Bryant and New York Yankees pitcher CC Sabathia are already on board.
