WME Sports has signed Gonzaga C Chet Holmgren for exclusive NIL representation. Carlos Fleming will serve as his lead agent. Holmgren selected WME Sports to handle his NIL work after he and his family went through a formal NIL agent selection process. Holmgren, considered the No. 1 recruit entering college basketball this season, already is listed as the potential No. 1 pick in the '22 NBA Draft in some early mock drafts. Holmgren was named the '21 Naismith Prep Player of the Year, the '21 Gatorade National Player of the Year and the '21 McDonald’s Morgan Wootten Boys Basketball Player of the Year. This past summer, Holmgren won the FIBA U-19 World Cup MVP award after he led Team USA to a Gold Medal victory.
