Who is Teague Egan? He's the USC student and registered NFL agent who gave freshman tailback Dillon Baxter a ride across campus in his custom golf cart two weeks ago that resulted in Baxter being suspended for the Trojans' game against Oregon State.
Although the NFLPA doesn't certify anyone as an agent unless they have undergraduate and advance degrees and Egan doesn't graduate until May, he asked for and was given a waiver based on his experience as a negotiator. He officially became an agent on Oct. 1, which has created quite the problem for USC, already on heightened alert after NCAA sanctions for improper benefits by an agent to the parents of Reggie Bush.
Egan contends he has been friends with several USC players long before he became an agent and he told T.J. Simers of the Los Angeles Times that his goal is to sign four to six Trojans for the upcoming NFL draft, possibly as early as Sunday.
"Like [NFL agent] Drew Rosenhaus who represented every Miami kid after going to school at Miami, I intend to represent every USC kid," he said.
