Many analysts consider Barkley, a Whitehall High graduate, the No. 1 running back in the upcoming draft and a certain first-round draft pick.

Penn State football coach James Franklin celebrates the win over Iowa with running back Saquon Barkley during an NCAA college football game in State College, Pa., Saturday, Nov. 5, 2016. He announced he was going pro on Sunday.

"Excited to share that I've signed with Kim Miale of Roc Nation Sports", Barkley wrote.

Barkley told ESPN on Wednesday that it was a "really easy decision" to sign with Roc Nation, and he revealed that his family was invited to Jay-Z's home in Los Angeles to talk about his business future.

The 20-year old running back rushed for over 1,000 yards in each of his three seasons with the Nittany Lions, and had 18 rushing touchdowns in each of his last two seasons.

While he didn't make it as a finalist for the Heisman Trophy, he was a frontrunner for much of the season before finishing fourth in Heisman voting. "I will continue to work each and every day to continue to represent Penn State the right way as I move on to the next phase of my life". If that wasn't enough, he also returned two kicks for touchdowns. "Saquon has left a legacy both on and off the field that will long be remembered by the Penn State community". Knowing how much it means to him, I have the utmost confidence that he will follow through on his promise and the plan that we have discussed to earn his Penn State degree. "So happy to join the @rocnation family and have the opportunity to pursue my lifelong dream of playing in the National Football League". "We wish him nothing but the best on Sundays".
