8th Grader Signs With Billy Gillispie

So much for holding onto your Letter of Intent as long as possible. A 6’4 8th grader will not have to tour various college campuses, because at the moment, he is committed to playing basketball at Kentucky when he graduates high school.

For a long time, the site has held a monopoly in terms of aggregating basketball agent information in a fairly easy to read format. Monopolies are meant to be broken, though.

Darren Rovell reports that Memphis standout Freshman guard, Derrick Rose, will sign with WMG agent, Arn Tellem. I recently discussed that NBA Early Entries will start to select agents right about now, and if Rose officially picks Tellem for representation, he will not disappoint.

We were informed that our non-Jewish brother that is definitely from another mother, Eric Gordon, decided to announce that he was leaving Indiana early to play professional basketball at a press conference held at an Indianapolis JCC (that stands for Jewish Community Center).
