Arkansas's Courtney Fortson signs with BP Sports Management

Atlanta, GA - University of Arkansas sophomore point guard, and Montgomery native, Courtney Fortson will forego his remaining college eligibility and has signed an agreement with BP Sports Management (BPSM) to represent his professional basketball career.

Fortson, a second-team All-Southeastern Conference player this season, led the Razorbacks with 17.9 points per game and led the Conference in assists, with 5.9 per game.

"Courtney was one of the most explosive guards in the country this year. His second half performance against Mississippi State speaks for itself," his agent Charles Briscoe said.

Fortson joins his former college teammates Michael Washington and Stefan Welsh as clients of BP Sports Management.
