College Basketball Players Headline Sports Agents

On To The Next One: Julian Mavunga

Former Miami Ohio basketball player Julian Mavunga has signed with HOF Player Representatives.  Mavunga, who just finished his senior season, averaged 16.4 points, 9 rebounds, 3.4 assists, and 36.9 minutes player per game in his senior season. currently ranks Mavunga as the 53rd best senior in the country (up 9 slots since I last covered him).

Mavunga was formerly represented by NBPA Certified Agent Johnny Foster.  Foster represents Darryl “Truck” Bryant of West Virginia and the svelte Renardo Sidney.

“I let Julian go because we were not seeing eye to eye,” Foster told Sports Agent Blog.  “He is a great kid and I wish him the best of luck.  I have nothing negative to say about him.”

Mavunga also reached out to Sports Agent Blog to clear the air after this comment was posted.  “I don’t know if anything negative was said, but I don’t want any kind of tension between me and Johnny Foster,” said Mavunga.  “I heard about the article or the ‘fastest firing ever’ and it really wasn’t like that. We just decided to go separate ways because we did not see eye to eye on everything. I have nothing against Johnny and he is a good guy.”
