Matt Barkley signs with CAA Sports agency

USC quarterback Matt Barkley has signed with CAA Sports, which features agents Tom Condon, Ben Dogra and Jimmy Sexton, a person familiar with the situation said.
Barkley, a four-year starter for the Trojans, is regarded as one of the top quarterbacks in the 2013 NFL Draft.

Barkley suffered a sprained shoulder joint against UCLA on Nov. 17 and was sidelined for the Trojans’ final regular-season game against Notre Dame and for the Sun Bowl against Georgia Tech.

He has not practiced since he was injured and he said last week that his status for the Jan. 26 Senior Bowl was to be determined.

Barkley also is scheduled to participate in the NFL Scouting Combine in February and in USC’s pro day workout this spring.

Sexton has represented USC Coach Lane Kiffin.
