Along with being one of the greatest recording rap artist of his generation, Dwayne “Lil Wayne” Michael Carter Jr. also has an eye for getting the best talent in the realm of sports.
His agency, Young Money APAA Sports, represents a multitude of athletes — including some from the University of Alabama.
After getting Quinnen Williams to sign with the brand, Young Money now has Williams, Jalen Hurts, Jedrick Wills, Deonte Brown and Christian Barmore. Barmore, a native of Philadelphia, Pa., becomes the latest name to sign. He inked his contract with Nicole Lynn, NFL and NBA Agent, on Friday. The redshirt sophomore decided on Thursday that it was time for him to declare for the upcoming NFL Draft.
He was dominant throughout the 2020 season, recording 9.5 tackles for loss, eight sacks, six quarterback hurries, three pass breakups and three forced fumbles in 13 games.

Welcome to the FAMILY! @Chris_Bmore4u
The 6-foot-5, 315-pounder showcased his worth all season on the defensive line. He sacked quarterbacks, put fear into the hearts of running backs, and brought a universal sense of energy and power to @alabamafbl #YMAPAA #RollTide #NFL pic.twitter.com/J3EQGANB4X

Barmore was a first-team All-SEC selection.
His performance in the College Football Playoff National Championship Game cement his first-round status.
According to the NFL Draft projections database for Touchdown Alabama Magazine, we have Barmore listed as a first-rounder and he could possibly go to the Tampa Bay Buccaneers with the 25th overall pick.
Barmore, like Williams, needed just one year as a starter to set him up for the NFL.
