College Basketball Players Headline Sports Agents

On To The Next One: Darryl “Truck” Bryant

On April 9, I reported that NBPA Certified Agent and founding member/president of Capital Sports LLC Johnny Foster signed Darryl “Truck” Bryant of West Virginia and Julian Mavunga of Miami Ohio.  Then on May 29, I wrote that Mavunga left Foster and signed with HOF Player Representatives.  Foster stated that he let Julian go because they were not seeing eye to eye.  And recently, Foster also lost Darryl “Truck” Bryant.

Austin Walton, President and CEO of Walton Sports Management Group, has confirmed that Bryant has hired Jared Hodges, who is an associate at Walton’s company.

While Foster has had two clients (Mavunga and Bryant) leave him in a short period of time, he continues to represent Renardo Sidney.  I know that I am interested in seeing what Sidney does in his professional career.
