Jay-Z seems to be finding a knack for signing top NFL running back prospects. Last year, Roc Nation Sports signed would be NFL Offensive Rookie of the Year, Todd Gurley, out of the University of Georgia. This to go along with a star-studded lineup which includes Ndamukong Suh, Victor Cruz & Dez Bryant, and that just start the list of NFL players. They have added someone, who many think, could have the prospect of future Hall of Fame RB Adrian Peterson. December 19, Roc Nation Tweeted out that it is welcoming aboard LSU RB Leonard Fournette.

Fournette is forecasted as a lock for the first round of the draft by some scouts, and some see him going in the top five overall. The people down in Baton Rouge along with others in the football world, consider the Tiger’s RB to be a “once in a generation” type player. He made the decision in the past week to forgo playing his final game for LSU, in the Buffalo Wild Wings Citrus Bowl against Louisville, on New Year’s Eve in Orlando, Florida.

The LSU standout announced his intention to enter the 2017 draft the first Monday of December, which came as a surprise to no one. Fournette finished his career with 3830 rushing yards and amassed 41 touchdowns, 2,987 of those yards on the ground and 33 touchdowns came in his first two seasons with the Tigers. It has been reported the LSU limited his carries this season past to help preserve him for a playoff run and his future NFL career.
