Todd Gurley, who formerly played for the University of Georgia’s Georgia Bulldogs, has reportedly signed with Jay Z’s Roc Nation Sports management company. Gurley is the sixth football player to be signed to the company, along with Dez Bryant, Geno Smith, Hakeem Nicks, Ndamukong Suh and Victor Cruz.
The 20-year-old running back is predicted to be a top draft pick in the 2015 NFL draft. He was also in the running to win the Heisman Memorial Trophy Award until he was caught receiving an improper profit from selling autographs and suspended by the NCAA for four games. Before he suffered an ACL injury in November of last year, he averaged 151.8 yards and scored 10 touchdowns.
His signing comes days after boxer Andre Ward was added to the Roc Nation roster.
