Creighton's Doug McDermott signs with Priority Sports
Moving on from the miserable 85-55 loss to Baylor that ended his college career, Doug McDermott has signed with Priority Sports, the management firm announced Wednesday.
The firm, which handles NFL and NBA athletes, has represented more than 20 first-round NBA draft picks. The list of NBA athletes Priority Sports represents includes Mo Williams, David Lee and Gordon Hayward.
McDermott ended his college career ranked fifth on the all-time NCAA Division I scoring list with 3,150 points. He passed the 3,000 mark on the same night he achieved a career-high 45 points against Providence during Creighton's senior night. He also received Big East Player of the Year honors in Creighton's first year in the conference.
Despite a disappointing final game for McDermott, he's still projected to be a solid NBA draft pick this year.
We're happy to welcome @dougmcd3 to the Priority Sports family! Looking forward to doing special things together. #dougmcbuckets — Priority Sports (@PrioritySports) March 26, 2014
