Hundley family denies agent contact report
Brett Hundley "has had representatives talk to Jay-Z's company, Roc Nation Sports, about possibly being his agent should Hundley declare for the (NFL) draft in April."The National Football Post reported Wednesday morning that UCLA's star quarterback
According to Hundley's father, Brett Hundley Sr., the report is "not even close" to true, and he has no idea "where that came from."
"I want to dispel any and all rumors associated with Brett and our family reaching out to ANY AGENTS, REPRESENTATIVES, OR ANYONE ELSE THAT IS NOT LOCKED INTO UCLA FOOTBALL 2013 SEASON!!" Hundley Sr. said in a statement via text message to BruinSportsReport.com Wednesday. "It is unfortunate that this miss-information was published without confirmation from Brett and our family. The farthest thing on Brett's mind is opening up discussions with any and all agents, financial planners, lawyers, etc.etc. Brett's sole focus/purpose right now is preparing for Colorado this week. After that, it will be Arizona, Washington, Arizona State, and ultimately USC!!!"
Hundley Jr. has been touted by many NFL Draft experts as possibly the No. 2 best quarterback prospect in the upcoming draft behind Louisville's Teddy Bridgewater. They cite his size, running ability and arm strength as intriguing NFL attributes.
But according to Hundley Sr., even if those evaluations are correct, his son hasn't had any contact with agents, and is not even close to thinking about his possible NFL future either.
"UCLA is a great program with a storied history," Hundley Sr. said in the statement. "Brett wants to be a part of the group that achieves every goal that coach (Jim) Mora, the coaching staff, and his teammates have set."
