Heisman Finalist Trent Richardson Signs With Jimmy Sexton (CAA)

Since leaving SportsTrust Advisors to join Tom Condon and Ben Dogra at Creative Artists Agency (CAA), Jimmy Sexton has been busy building his football player client list.  For many years, Sexton was widely known for representing many of the best coaches in college and professional football.  While that statement still holds true today, it would be hard to dispute that he pays much more attention these days to recruiting and representing players than he did in the past.  Recently drafted clients include Tim Tebow and Julio Jones.  He will certainly continue to gain strength as a players’ agent through the players he represents in the 2012 NFL Draft.

I already reported on Sexton’s signing of Memphis Defensive Tackle Dontari Poe.   The NFL’s College Advisory Committee, provided Poe his Draft grade (2nd round) prior to Poe signing with Sexton and entering his name into the 2012 NFL Draft.

More recently, Sexton signed former Alabama running back and Heisman Trophy Finalist, Trent Richardson.  I will let the video below do all the talking.
