BATON ROUGE, LA (WAFB) - Former LSU running back Leonard Fournette has landed his first endorsement deal as a professional.
Under Armour announced on Wednesday that Fournette had joined the team.
ESPN is reporting that it is a multi-year deal and one of the most valuable endorsement contracts ever for an NFL rookie.
The talented running back left LSU as one of the all-time greats in the program, rushing for 3,380 yards, a 6.2 yard per carry average and 40 touchdowns.
After announcing he would forego his senior season and declare for the NFL Draft last month, he signed with Roc Nation Sports, a sub-division of Roc Nation, owned by hip-hop mogul Jay Z.
Fournette is projected to be a top 10 pick in this year's draft.
