Jay-Z seems to know which players to get his hands on, and Georgia Bulldogs running back Todd Gurley is his latest addition.

Gurley will join Jay-Z’s Roc Nation Sports, becoming the sixth football player to be represented by the company.

The junior decided to enter the 2015 NFL Draft in late December, and now two weeks later he has one of the fastest growing sports agencies bringing him aboard.

He will join Dallas Cowboys wideout Dez Bryant, Indianapolis Colts wideout Hakeem Nicks, Detroit Lions defensive tackle Ndamukong Suh, New York Jets quarterback Geno Smith and New York Giants wideout Victor Cruz as NFL players who chose to team-up with HOV.

Gurley had somewhat of a rocky junior season, as he was suspended four games for signing paraphernalia and selling it to memorabilia dealers. Once he was elgibile to return, he tore his ACL in his first game back against Auburn — causing him to miss the rest of the season.

However, it’s clear to see how talented he can be when out on the field. In just six games played this season, he had 123 rushes for 911 yards and nine touchdowns. Not bad at all. He’s expected to be a top-10 draft pick, according to ESPN college football analyst Mel Kiper’s Big Board.
