Jalen Hurts defends women in all-female team sports

After playing the final game of his collegiate career for Oklahoma in January 2020, Jalen Hurts checked his Instagram messages. One of them was from NFL agent Nicole Lynn: “Hey, you picked an agent? If not, I’d like to connect.”

“A total Hail Mary,” is how Lynn describes it.

It was beyond a long shot. Most players entering the draft have long chosen an agent by January.

Lynn went to OU law school, and her husband had played at Alabama, where Hurts won a national championship before becoming faster. She has also already represented about a dozen Alabama graduates, including offensive tackle Evan Neal, the highest-drafted Alabama player in school history. Lynn was also from Houston, as was Hurts.

“All that synergy,” she recalls now. So she shot DM on impulse. “I didn’t even expect him to see it.”
