Atlanta-based RMI Athletics is a very young agency, but Founder/NFLPA Certified Contract Advisor, Ryan Rubin, is finding a way to sign new clients. The recent additions include Demonte McAllister (Florida State), Senorise Perry (Louisville), and David Sims (Georgia Tech).
“RMI was opened in the fall of 2012, so this is our first full year of recruiting, and we couldn’t be happier with these guys,” Rubin said. “They each have the talent to excel in the NFL, and more importantly, are great people off the field. We truly feel we have located some of the gems of the 2014 class in Demonte, Senorise, and David. All three of these guys have unique skill sets, yet are extremely versatile.”
McAllister is projected to be a late draft selection or sign as an undrafted free agent. The Tampa, Florida native will be participating in Saturday’s East-West Shrine Game in St. Petersburg, Florida. He has been playing both defensive end and 3-technique defensive tackle in preparation for the Shrine Game. According to Rubin, he will be training at Bommarito Performance Systems in Miami, Florida leading up to the Draft.
“(Demonte’s) versatility makes him an attractive option for any scheme,” Rubin said. “He was asked to take on many roles with FSU on a defensive line stacked with NFL talent. Athletes who can play multiple positions are in great demand in today’s NFL, especially those with elite speed like Demonte.”
Before suffering a season-ending ACL injury in 2012, Senorise Perry rushed for 700-plus yards and 11 touchdowns.
“He really showed his determination and toughness coming back faster than anyone expected (9 months) to lead a Louisville rushing attack that was one of the fiercest in the nation,” Rubin said. “Whether catching the ball out of the backfield or running between the tackles, he is a threat to score every time he touches the ball. He also excels on special teams, which will serve him well at the next level.”
Perry finished his career at Louisville with 289 carries for 1,400-plus yards and 18 touchdowns. In preparation for the NFL Draft, he is currently training at school as he completes his Communications degree.
Finally, signee David Sims recently played in the Medal of Honor Bowl in Charleston, South Carolina. The Columbia, South Carolina native capped off his senior year with 884 rushing yards and 11 touchdowns, a season-best.
“He is a big, strong back that is tough to stop in short yardage yet still has shown a knack for breaking long touchdown runs during his time at Tech,” Rubin said. “Tech’s backs have proven to be NFL ready in the past and David is no different. His size and strength make him ideal for picking up the blitz and handling the physicality of today’s NFL.”
