Agent allegedly contacted Prothro without registering

MONTGOMERY, Ala. -- A sports agent surrendered to authorities
Monday on charges accusing him of contacting Alabama football
player Tyrone Prothro without properly registering as an agent.

A statement by the Alabama attorney general's office said Jason
Goggins of Savage Sports Management in Newport News, Va., solicited
Prothro while the player was still in the hospital after he broke
his leg during the Florida game last October.

Goggins, 33, was charged in a two-count indictment with failure
to register as a sports agent in Alabama and contacting an athlete
before registering.

Goggins and the chief executive of the company, Raymond L.
Savage Jr., did not immediately return a phone message seeking
comment.

Neither Prothro nor the university were accused of any
wrongdoing.
