The draft assessment must have gone well for Ike Anigbogu because, today, Glushon Sports Management announced that they have been signed to represent Anigbogu.
The announcement was made via Twitter. Here’s the tweet which was sent out:
Welcome @IkePostrs_ & the Anigbogu family to our family. We're so excited at what the future holds! #Family #UCLA #8Clap #LetsGetToWork pic.twitter.com/G3mVB0Jt2b— Glushon Sports Mgmt (@GlushonSM) April 20, 2017
Jason Gluson started Glushon Sports Management last year after leaving Wasserman. His other clients include Justin and Jrue Holiday.
Anigbogu is the third Bruin basketball player to hire an agent. He joins Lonzo Ball and TJ Leaf, both of whom have already hired agents.
That leaves Thomas Welsh and Aaron Holiday as the only two UCLA underclassmen who have declared for the draft and not yet hired agents. Underclassmen who do not hire an agent have until May 24th to remove their names from the Draft and return to school.
According to the LA Times’ Ben Bolch, there is no consensus as to when, or if, Anigbogu will be selected. Bolch writes, “One mock draft board predicts he will be go No. 18 overall, but another foresees him going No. 37, which would be early in the second round.”
Generally speaking, Anigbogu appears to be seen as someone who has a big upside because of his size.
Good luck in the NBA, Ike!
