Chase Young and Jeff Okudah are not done being teammates.

Although the pair have announced their intention to leave Ohio State a year early to enter the NFL Draft, they will share an agency at the next level.

Klutch Sports Group announced Tuesday that Young will be part of the agency started by Rich Paul after Paul and LeBron James broke away from powerhouse Creative Artists Agency several years ago and began forming their own empire.

The group announced Saturday the addition of Okudah, making him the first football player to join a growing group that notably includes James and fellow NBA stars Anthony Davis and Draymond Green.
