Saquon Barkley

"It was a really easy decision", said Barkley, according to Darren Rovell of ESPN.com "A lot of people came around my way, but they were focused on me and they did a great job at selling my family on setting me up for life, bringing value outside of football".

"Excited to share that I've signed with Kim Miale of Roc Nation Sports".

He leaves Penn State as the program's all-time leader in rushing touchdowns and career all-purpose yards.

Barkley is the fourth running back to join the Roc Nation Sports NFL roster, joining Rams All-Pro Todd Gurley, Jaguars rookie Leonard Fournette and Seahawks C.J. Prosise.

Roc Nation is relatively new to the sports agency world, having launched its sports division just five years ago. He is expected to be one of the top picks in the 2018 NFL Draft.
