Former LSU running back Derrius Guice has decided on an agency to represent him. And it’s one that has never represented an NFL player — or even a professional athlete.
Top Dawg Entertainment, which represents several musicians, including rapper Kendrick Lamar, is opening up a sports division, according to Darren Rovell of ESPN. And Guice will be the first athlete that the agency represents.
“They were the first guys who came to me, just like LSU was the first school to offer me a scholarship,” Guice said, according to ESPN. “I didn’t forget that.”
According to Rovell, Guice is a fan of Kendrick Lamar and he liked the idea of being an agency’s first sports client.
“The focus is on me and my game plan, not on a ton of other guys,” Guice told Rovell.
Top Dawg Entertainment was founded by Anthony “Top Dawg” Tiffith in 2004. The agency currently represents eight artists.
Guice rushed for 3,074 yards and 29 touchdowns over his three-year career with the Tigers. This past season, he rushed for 1,251 yards and 11 touchdowns.
Now, Guice is headed toward a professional career in the NFL.
