Sports agency says it will represent Fortson

FAYETTEVILLE, AR (AP) - A sports management group says it has signed Arkansas guard Courtney Fortson, who recently declared for the NBA draft.

Fortson, a sophomore, had the option of changing his mind and returning to school if he'd gone without an agent. However, Nick Paluch of BP Sports Management said Wednesday night his group had reached an agreement with Fortson.

Fortson led the Razorbacks with 17.9 points per game last season.

BP Sports Management also represents Michael Washington and Stefan Welsh, who just finished their senior seasons at Arkansas.
