Rihanna, Jay-Z Welcome Skylar Diggins To Roc Nation

By  | 

Jay-Z and his Roc Nation Sports have just acquired their second athlete. This week it was announced that Skylar Diggins would be joining New York Yankees star Robinson Cano on the Roc Nation roster.

“It’s the ROC in here!” Diggins tweeted after news broke of her signing.“ShockNation meets RocNation.”

Diggins, a South Bend, Indiana native, is a five-time USA Basketball gold medalist, and four-time college All-American. Diggins was selected with the No. 3 overall pick in the first round of the 2013 WNBA Draft by the Tulsa Shock.

Diggins also recently completed her college career at the University of Notre Dame where she was the only only player (of either gender) in Notre Dame basketball history to register 2,000 points, 500 rebounds, 500 assists and 300 steals in her career.

Roc Nation artist Rihanna gave Diggins some love on Twitter Friday morning, writing:

“I wanna give a special shout out to Skylar Diggins! @SkyDigg4 WELCOME to the @RocNation fam! #RocGirlz #palmsrisetotheuniverse.”
