Agents & Advisors
1/5/2013

In accordance with Louisiana State law, a student-athlete or his/her parents (or legal guardians) may contact an agent to discuss potential future representation or to schedule an on-campus meeting, provided the agent has properly registered with LSU, the Office of the Louisiana Attorney General (LAG) and the appropriate players association. Before meeting/speaking with the student-athlete, the agent must provide at least seven (7) days advance notice to the Athletics Director and Head Coach.

A student-athlete may not agree verbally or in writing to be represented by an athlete agent in the present or in the future for the purpose of marketing the student-athlete's ability or reputation. If you enter into such an agreement, you are ineligible for intercollegiate athletics competition.

Further, a student-athlete may not accept transportation or other benefits from an athlete agent. As a student-athlete, this prohibition applies to you as well as your relatives and/or friends. The term "agent" includes actual agents, runners (individuals who befriend student-athletes and frequently distribute impermissible benefits) and financial advisors.

It is not a violation of NCAA rules if a student-athlete merely talks to an agent (as long as an agreement for agent representation is not established) or socializes with an agent. For example, you may go to dinner with an agent and no NCAA violations would result as long as you provide your own transportation and pay for your meal.
