First this response is general information only and does not establish an attorney client relationship. However to answer the question - a High school person can have a sports agent. However if you are under 18 you may need a parent or other legal guardian or someone with power of attorney to sign contracts for you. When you are 18 then you can sign for yourself.

A person in high school can enter into an agreement with a sports agent however doing so will result in a loss of the high school athlete's amateur status and thus loss of eligibility to participate in NCAA sports as per NCAA rules and regulations.
