Jay Z signs top football prospect to sports label

Jay Z has added a top football prospect to his ever-expanding sports agency after signing Georgia running back Todd Gurley to Roc Nation Sports.

Just days after securing the services of boxer Andre Ward, the rap mogul has picked up Gurley, who is expected to be one of the top picks in April's (15) National Football League Draft.


Gurley comes with a little baggage - he was suspended for four college games last year (14) after officials discovered he had sold autographs to memorabilia dealers.


The running back becomes the sixth football star in Jay Z's sports stable, where he joins the likes of Dez Bryant and Victor Cruz.
