Colleges With Student Athletes Earning Money from NIL

The NCAA’s NIL is revolutionizing collegiate athletics. Now that these college athletes may profit off their names, images, and likeness, there are several opportunities and NIL sponsorship for them to make a reputation for themselves outside of the sports they participate in and the university teams they represent.

Every month, an increasing number of collegiate athletes accept deals and NIL sponsorships from various corporations. Some universities may have one or two, while others already have a large number of student athletes that reap from the NIL ruling’s benefits.
