Stanford Cardinal QB Andrew Luck will almost-certainly be the No. 1 selection in the 2012 NFL Draft, as every single mock draft out there projects. When he is, the Wasserman Media Group will represent him. Liz Mullen of Sports Business Journal is reporting that Stanford quarterback Andrew Luck is expected to sign with Wasserman Media Group on Tuesday.
Instead of signing with a big-name agency like CAA or Athletes First or a top name like Eugene Parker or Drew Rosenhaus, Luck becomes the first football player with WMG. As Darren Rovell of CNBC points out, Luck will likely be represented by his uncle, William Wilson.
Lucky break for Wilson.
Wasserman Media Group is known largely for the basketball players but also rep the biggest names in American soccer (Landon Donovan, Tim Howard and Hope Solo) and the rising stars of golf (Jason Day, Rickie Fowler, Zach Johnson).
As Rovell also notes, WMG has had a No. 1 pick in the MLB, NBA, MLS and WNBA drafts. With the Colts expected to draft Luck, they can add a No. 1 NFL pick to the list.
