Since 2012, Klutch Sports has represented some of the biggest names in the National Basketball Association. The company has now ventured into football, and two alums from the University of Alabama have signed. Phidarian Mathis and Evan Neal have declared for the upcoming NFL Draft. Both won a national championship together with the Crimson Tide in 2020, while Mathis has two national title rings from 2017 and 2020. Mathis and Neal have at least two Southeastern Conference title rings.
