College Football Players Headline Sports Agents

The Morgan Advisory Group (MAG) 2013 NFL Draft Prospect Class

MAG-FootballFlyer-5In 2011, I wrote that Morgan Advisory Group (MAG) was an agency to watch.  My prediction could not have been that far off; the company represents the hottest baseball player in Major League Baseball – Pablo Sandoval.  But MAG has also been very successful in other sports, including football.

In the 2012 NFL Draft, MAG represented two picks: Arkansas wide receiver Jarius Wright, selected by the Minnesota Vikings with the 118th overall pick; and Arkansas wide receiver Greg Childs, also selected by the Vikings with the 134th overall pick.

The football agents at MAG consist of Zeke Sandhu, Ryan Morgan and Wynn Silberman.  They recently sent me the prospects they signed for 2013, shared below.

Jordan Poyer, CB, Oregon State — 6’0, 182.  2012 NCAA FBS Consensus All-American.  Playmaking cornerback with tremendous ball skills and shutdown capability — instinctive, aggressive and smart & a highly respected leader in the OSU locker room.  Also has excelled as a Punt Returner.  Was tied for second in the Nation with 7 interceptions for the 2012 season.  Senior Bowl and Combine invite.

Alvin Bailey,  OG, Arkansas — 6/5″ 315.  All – SEC performer.  Strong, athletic lineman that started every game of his career at Arkansas.  Anchored the line for the first season in school history with a 3,000 yard passer and a 1,000 yard rusher.  A tremendous student of the game, Alvin has the ability to be a dominant performer at the NFL level.  Combine invite.

Lonnie Pryor, tailback, Florida State.  6’0″ 227.  An affable, fun-loving personality off the field & one of the most beloved players ever to come through the Florida State program, Lonnie made a tremendous contribution in his four years at FSU as the top fullback in the nation.  Heads into the 2013 draft as an underrated tailback who has speed, toughness, weaving ability and a nose for the end zone.  Named MVP of Orange Bowl (5 carries, 135 yards, 2 touchdowns).  Before choosing to play at FSU, Lonnie was the most sought after running back recruit in the country.  Combine invite.

Cory Grissom, DT, USF — 6’2″ 315.  All Big East performer at DT.  Violent / active hands, great motor, explosive athlete, large lower body & low center of gravity.  Fast first step and excellent lateral quickness — Cory consistently battled double and triple teams while at USF.  Nicknamed “Porkchop”.  Senior Bowl and Combine invite.

Luke Ingram, LS, UH — 6/6″, 255.  Tremendous athlete who snaps with pinpoint accuracy and top notch velocity.  Has the speed and athleticism to stand out on punt coverage as well.  Senior Bowl and Combine invite.  Brother of MAG’s Jake Ingram (New Enland Patriots 6th Round Draft Pick).

Ryan Allen, P, La. Tech — First player ever to win the Ray Guy Award in two consecutive seasons.  Unanimous All American.  Led the nation in punting and in net punting.  Tremendous student of his craft & a great locker room guy.  Senior Bowl and Combine invite.

Tenarius Wright, LB/DE, Arkansas — 6’2″ 250.  Tremendous athlete and locker room leader, “Tank” was an All-SEC performer in 2009.  Finished ninth in the SEC in Quarterback Sacks in 2010 with 6.  Missed most of the 2012 season with a shoulder injury (surgery to repair labrum) but has rehabbed to 100% strength with Brett Fischer of Fischer Sports in Phoenix, Arizona.  Has the ability to perform as a hybrid LB/DE in the NFL.

Daniel Glauser, OT, FSU — 6’6″ 322.  Athletic, strong lineman from Florida State.  A glitch between his junior college and the school he played at in his native Switzerland cost Glauser his expected additional year of eligibility.  While at the New Mexico Military Institute, Glauser made a name for himself as one of the nation’s brightest junior college offensive line prospects.  FSU coaches cited his work ethic and upside as a reason he had a chance to get on the field “early”.  Arkansas, Mississippi State and Oklahoma State also offered Glauser after NMMI.  Casino Del Sol Invite.
