Moe Harkless Signs With Happy Walters of Rogue Sports

St. John’s Freshman Moe Harkless will not return to the Red Storm, and will instead test his luck in the 2012 NBA Draft.  He will have Happy Walters and the rest of the team at Rogue Sports to guide him along the way.  A member of the Rogue Sports team tells me that the company is extremely impressed not only by Harkless’ talent, but also his incredible personality.  Harkless is certainly one of the younger players likely to be drafted (he is still only 18-years-old), but seems to have a good head on his shoulders. currently projects Harkless as the 21st pick of the 1st round of the Draft.  That is right around where Rogue Sports client Iman Shumpert was selected (17th overall) by the New York Knicks in the 2011 NBA Draft.  Other Rogue Sports clients include Corey Brewer, DeJuan Blair, and Amar’e Stoudemire.
