Nike signed Deshaun Watson, Christian McCaffery, Dalvin Cook and John Ross in its 2017 NFL Draft class. Barkley is the first NFL prospect Nike has signed this year.

This is the second notable business decision Barkley has made since declaring for the draft on New Year’s Eve. He also signed with Jay Z’s sports agency, Roc Nation Sports. As one of the most exciting players and recognizable names in the draft, Barkley is highly coveted by marketers.

The Coplay, Pa. native finished his three-year career with 3,843 rushing yards and 43 rushing touchdowns. Barkley finished fourth in the Heisman voting in 2017 after accumulating 1,903 yards and 21 touchdowns from scrimmage.
