College Basketball Players Headline Sports Agents

Seton Hall Point Guard Jordan Theodore Signs With Athlete Advocates


Jordan Theodore had a very good senior season even though he was on one of the few teams in the Big East that did not make the NCAA Tournament.  Theodore, a point guard at Seton Hall, was named Second Team-All District by The National Association of Basketball Coaches (NABC).  He was the only Seton Hall player to make first or second team honors.  He also happened to break Seton Hall’s record for assists in a single season.  In an important regular season game against Georgetown, he scored 29 points.  He averaged above 16 points on the season.  Theodore also shoots the ball well from the line, with above an 80% success rate from the charity stripe.

Theodore, who has been invited to and will play in the annual Portsmouth Invitational Tournament, has recently selected his agent.  Going forward, he will be represented by Jeffrey Dobin and Ryan Scarpa of Athlete Advocates.  Athletes Advocates does not currently represent any NBA players and is hoping that Theodore will be the company’s first.
