Three former USC Trojans, including Marqise Lee, sign with Athletes First


Athletes First announced Monday that they’ve signed three NFL-bound players who were previously on the USC Trojans. The trio is comprised of star wide receiver Marqise Lee, tight end Xavier Grimble, and defensive back Dion Bailey. All three will be represented by Andrew Kessler.

Kessler offered his thoughts on the signing:

I am extremely excited to work with and represent a group of great USC players in Marqise, Dion, and Xavier, and all the other talented Athletes First clients in the upcoming draft. These guys are truly unique talents who I think will be a success in the NFL.  Athletes First will once again be representing a great group of rookies and we will do all we can to help them in their transition from college to the NFL and throughout their entire careers (Sports Agent Blog).

All three of the former Trojans are considered to be among the best NFL prospects at their respective positions, with Lee leading the way as a projected first-round pick.
