- · The season started off with a phone call from a school’s compliance office requesting that, on the request of the coach, I do not contact their players until after the season, at which time, they will assists their athletes in choosing representation. >>>>>>>>
- · We recruited a player the whole season, Friday before his last game he tells us to meet him and his family Sunday, so he can sign the SRA. We didn't hear from player again until 10 days later. He said he signed with his coaches agent (whom he never met), and he made a hasty decision in telling me he would sign with us.
- · Player who was projected to go 2nd round, FATHER was given a loan of 50k by an agency, (or so I heard) with the son obligated to pay the loan back, without the son’s knowledge of the loan at the beginning… Another player’s family was given an interest free loan somewhere in the HIGH 5 figures as a “nice gesture” by an agency…
- · A school that utilizes a “panel” to help its athletes choose their agents had a friend of mine come in and present. After the meeting, the player sent a text to my friend and said he would sign with him. The School called the next day and informed my friend the player has chosen a different direction. An Agent, who happens to represent a member of the coaching staff, yet was not at the presentation.
I just want to look at the poor guy and say, “You do realize that you went from having to pay 0 to anyone out of pocket, to paying half of the money owed out of your own pocket ASAP, and still on the hook for the other half to the new agent right?
