Former Northwestern middle linebacker Anthony Walker Jr. has signed with Rosenhaus Sports Representation, headed by longtime agent Drew Rosenhaus and his brother Jason, Walker Jr. announced on Instagram late Sunday night. Rosenhaus confirmed the signing via Twitter.

Walker Jr. declared he was leaving for the NFL with one year of eligibility left on December 30, and by hiring an agent, he has officially lost his amateur status. The talented former Wildcat will be led throughout the pre-draft, draft and post-draft process by Rosenhaus himself and director of marketing Robert Bailey.

Walker was an All-American last season and finished with second-team All-Big Ten honors this year after a slow start that can be attributed to a preseason knee injury that lingered throughout training camp and into the first few weeks of the regular season. Listed at 6-foot-1 and 245 pounds and one of the team’s four captains, Walker registered 105 total tackles, including 10.0 tackles for loss, in his final campaign in Evanston to go along with six passes defended, four forced fumbles, two fumbles recovered and two sacks. He also registered an interception against Purdue.

Rosenhaus has an impressive list of clients, both current and past, headlined by Rob Gronkowski, Antonio Brown, LeSean McCoy and Chad Ochocinco.
