Former Penn State running back Saquon Barkley has already aligned himself with some top names across the sporting landscape ahead of the 2018 NFL Draft.
On Monday, he posed with another Nike athlete: NBA star LeBron James.
Barkley posted these pictures to his Instagram story.
In the pictures, its clear Nike and LeBron hooked Barkley up with some fresh kicks and then the young running back got to meet James in person after the Cleveland Cavaliers’ 123-109 win against the New York Knicks on Monday night.
It’s widely rumored that Barkley will go to the Cleveland Browns in the draft later this month after finishing his college career with 3,843 rushing yards and 43 rushing touchdowns.
If so, the two could be seeing a lot more of each other.
Barkley tweeted the picture at James and he responded in kind.
All love and respect Young King 🤴🏾! Good luck with the draft and do work at the next level. 🙏🏾 https://t.co/E0lG7xXjbx
