Newfound sports agent Jay Z has caused quite a stir after showing interest in NCAA football player Jadeveon Clowney. The University of South Carolina’s athletics department is investigating whether Clowney violated NCAA rules by making an agreement to be represented by an agent. An agent can only talk to players as long as they do not provide any services and it is unclear if an agreement has been made between Clowney and Jay Z’s Roc Nation Sports. Jay Z has been recently making a splash by announcing his move into the sports industry and sees himself as a threat to those currently in the business. He has made it clear that he wants to make agents reconsider how much time and effort they put into working with their clients. Any backlash from agents, Jay says, is because of their conscience telling them they aren’t doing a good job and knowing that Roc Nation Sports will expose their weaknesses.
