“You know, I had a lot of thought about it, with the extra year and stuff like that, but I just thought it was in my best interest to sign with an agent and start my pro career. Obviously their reputation, everyone knows how good they are. You know, I have been talking with them for a while since my freshman year. So, it’s been a long-term relationship and I just took a leap of faith to believe in them and sign with them. Right now it’s pretty quiet, but when the off-season comes, then everything will pick up. But right now, I am just working on my game and just preparing for whatever the future holds,” said Makuach Maluach.
