BYU star point guard Jimmer Fredette of Glens Falls has signed on with Octagon to represent and market him as a professional.
Scott Horner, a spokesman for Octagon, said Fredette made his choice Monday after being courted by as many as 25 agencies.
Fredette, the consensus national player of the year, is expected to be a first-round pick in June’s NBA draft. He led the NCAA in scoring this season and helped guide the Cougars to a 32-5 record and the NCAA’s round of 16 for the first time since 1981.
Octagon represents hundreds of top athletes and entertainers, including NBA players Stephen Curry, Rudy Gay and Kirk Hinrich, 14-time Olympic gold medalist Michael Phelps, and CNN talk show host Piers Morgan.
