Florida Gators DT Jaye Howard Signs With Drew Rosenhaus

University of Florida running back Jeff Demps is putting aside his dreams to play professional football to focus on getting prepared to run track in the 2012 Olympics.  Don’t expect the same for the 6’3 302lb Florida defensive tackle Jaye Howard.  Howard, who was recently named Honorable Mention All-SEC by the Associated Press, has signed with Drew […]

Florida Almost De-Regulates Sports Agent Profession

My state of Florida almost abolished its athlete agent licensing system.  While it would have saved me and many other agents who recruit in the state of Florida a lot of money, until a federal system exists, it is probably not prudent to do away with Florida’s regulation of the sports agent profession.  Truthfully, I […]

The Next Chapter For Janoris Jenkins

There has not been a player selected in the first 2 rounds of the NFL Supplemental Draft since 2003.  But there also has not been a player with the skill set of Janoris Jenkins available for an NFL franchise to select in the past 8 years.

Chandler Parsons Signs With Priority Sports For Representation

My alma mater, the University of Florida, has had a good number of strong basketball players come through campus in the past decade, which is quite an accomplishment for the institution, considering it has never really been known as a basketball powerhouse.  Two national championships and an Elite Eight run in 2011 definitely helps build […]

Agent Selection Scenarios: Florida Basketball

It is well known that I am a Florida Gators fan, but even I could not believe when it was announced that the Gators received the #2 seed in the Southeast bracket.  The Gators have an experienced starting line-up with some very talented young players coming off of the bench.  Even though the team lost […]

Breakdown Of The 329 Players Invited To The 2011 NFL Combine

The NFL has announced all 329 combine invites on its Combine Official Invite List.  Ignore the fact that the title of the webpage says it is the 2009 list – it is actually this year’s list of Combine invites.  The Combine will certainly be wide-receiver heavy, with a total of 46 WR of the 329 […]


2010 – The Year “Student-Athlete” Lost Its Meaning

Today marks Sports Agent Blog’s 5th anniversary.  What started off as a 2005 New Year’s Resolution by yours truly, has turned into its own successful and profitable business, and a publication (call it “blog” – I am proud of that word) that has at least been discussed (if not read) by every sports agent in […]

Athlete Agent Enforcement Thus Far, And Where To Go From Here

Roughly a week before I sat to take the Florida Bar Exam, a flood began.  It started with an NCAA investigation into potential rules violations by players, agents, and even university employees at the University of North Carolina.  It quickly spread to NCAA investigations at the University of South Carolina, University of Florida, University of […]

NCAA Chomping At The Gators

As I have mentioned on this site and on my Twitter feed (@Darren_Heitner), the NCAA is finally taking enforcement of its regulations seriously.  A few days ago, many of my colleagues were questioning my focus on the investigation at UNC, because of the fact that it is readily known that some agents hand over benefits […]

Why I Decided To Enter The World Of Athlete Representation

Sometimes I am asked the question, “Why did you decide to enter the world of athlete representation?”  It is a loaded question that is extremely difficult to answer. Up until high school, the plan was to become a doctor.  You know that put a smile on my Jewish mother’s face.  When I realized that I […]
