Roc Nation Sports, Jay-Z‘s recently formed sports division of his Roc Nation entertainment company, has just signed Skylar Diggins. The current WNBA rookie and former NCAA basketball star was recently selected with the number 3 overall pick in the 2013 draft. Although Jay-Z is also eyeing NHL prospect Seth Jones and has already signed Yankees second baseman Robinson Cano, this is the first female athlete and first WNBA athlete that Roc Nation has signed. Despite her age, Diggins boasts quite the impressive resume including being a McDonald’s All-American straight out of high school and First Team All-American honors during her junior and senior seasons at Notre Dame.
