Testimonial

“Scott and Rize Management really prepared me for the NBA draft process and provided me with all the tools and resources that any other agency would have in order to excel in my draft workouts!  While every agency was recruiting me, Scott really showed me he cared, and I wanted to go with an agent that gave me a lot of personal attention.”
