Clowney reportedly in contact with Jay Z’s Roc Nation sports agency

NEW: Follow on facebook -

Jay Z has the world in his hand. He’s a rap megastar, and everything he touches seems to turn to gold. So, Jay Z recently started a sports agency, Roc Nation, and he’s reportedly interested in signing the future No. 1 overall pick in next year’s draft, Jadeveon Clowney.

Why wouldn’t he?

According to Neil Stratton of InsideTheLeague.com, Clowney has been in regular contact with Roc Nation, and the agency is the favorite to land his signature.

South Carolina’s compliance office is reportedly already looking into the matter, but there has been no official comment from the university yet.

Clowney even embraced the issue by posting this on his Instagram account Monday night, saying “You kno we about to turn up. Dream coming true”.

Now, before you get all up in arms about Clowney being ruled ineligible, or whether he committed an NCAA violation, this is legal. There is no NCAA rule prohibiting a student athlete from speaking with or even meeting an agent for dinner. The student-athlete has to provide his/her own transportation and has to pay for his/her own meal, and the two cannot establish an agreement for agent representation. You can read about it more in the NCAA Bylaws.

Clowney is allowed to communicate as much as he wants, and he hasn’t been linked to any form of violation, including taking benefits from an agent or anyone representing an agent or agency.

  1. I’m not a real big fan of Clowney. but only because he plays for the bad guys. but I really don’t want him to screw up his eligibility. I really want to seem play this year because he’s super talented and he doesn’t have a big mouth. I love players who quietly go around crushing it. unlike Johnny “the joke” football.
