In a week where NFL prospects at the quarterback position were making headlines for signing with agencies for off the field representation (Trevor Lawerence with Excel Sports and Mac Jones with ESM), you can add University of Alabama star wide receiver DeVonta Smith to that list. The Heisman winner and two-time National Champion Smith has signed with Rubicon Talent to represent him in off-field marketing, brand development & business endeavors.
Within recent weeks, DeVonta Smith has had stellar performances on and off the field. On the gridiron, Smith racked up 12 receptions for 215 yards and three touchdowns in Alabama’s win over Ohio State for the national championship. For the season, Smith caught 117 receptions for 1,856 yards and 23 touchdowns. Off the field, Smith took home almost every individual college football offensive award which includes the Heisman, Maxwell, Walter Camp, Biletnikoff, and Paul Hornung trophies.
Smith joins an already established client roster at Rubicon Talent which include 20 current and former NFL players including George Kittle, Mark Ingram II, Emmanuel Sanders, Montez Sweat, and many others. This is Rubicon Talent’s first 2021 NFL Draft prospect to sign with the agency and likely won’t be the last.
