Ohio State PG D’Angelo Russell Picks CAA’s Austin Brown And Aaron Mitz

Jonathan Givony of Draft Express announced via Twitter that Ohio State standout freshman D’Angelo Russell has signed a representation agreement with CAA’s Austin Brown and Aaron Mitz.

According to Chad Ford’s Big Board, the Louisville, Kentucky native is a projected top three pick in the upcoming 2015 NBA Draft behind Kentucky’s Karl-Anthony Towns and Duke’s Jahlil Okafor. The recent activity on Russell’s Instagram account indicates that he seems to like the idea of being drafted either second or third in the upcoming draft; liking pictures of himself in both Lakers and 76ers jerseys . The 6’5″, 180 lb, 19 year old averaged 19.3 PPG, 5.7 RPG, and 5.0 APG in his one year with the Buckeyes while leading Ohio State to a 24-11 record and NCAA Tournament appearance.

It was clear during Russell’s short stint in Columbus that he was leader on and off of the court. He is highly regarded by his coaches and teammates as a tireless worker, and as just a freshman, Russell was the Buckeyes go to player. It was clear early on that Thad Matta had put the team in the young freshman’s hands. Russell is highly touted for his superb court vision drawing comparisons to the all-time great passers. Russell has clear superstar potential in the NBA, it is only fitting that he has signed with one of the premier player agencies, joining players such as Chris Paul, Kevin Durant, and Paul George who are also represented by CAA’s Basketball Division.
