Leonard Fournette previously announced he would forgo LSU’s bowl game in order to focus on his NFL Draft preparations, and on Monday he officially confirmed that he is going to be a pro.
Fournette took to social media to announce he has signed with Jay Z’s Roc Nation Sports. The LSU star will be represented by Ari Nissim.
“Excited to be apart of my new family, let’s get it #BugaNation ❌ @rocnation,” Fournette wrote.
Many expect Fournette to be a first-round selection in the 2017 NFL Draft. Fournette joins NFL stars like Dez Bryant and Todd Gurley as Roc Nation clients.
A Fournette-less LSU squad finishes its 2016 season on Saturday, Dec. 31 against the Louisville Cardinals in the Citrus Bowl. Kickoff at Camping World Stadium in Orlando is set for 11 a.m. ET on ABC.
