What is NIL?

Put simply, Name, Image, and Likeness (NIL) is the concept that enables college athletes to be financially compensated. It involves utilizing an athlete’s name, image, and likeness for marketing and promotional purposes, such as autograph signings, endorsements, social media content, and other opportunities.

Why is it important?

NIL is important in college sports because it allows student-athletes to capitalize on their personal brands and opportunities while in college. Previously, NCAA rules prohibited athletes from profiting off their name, image, and likeness, which limited their potential earnings and opportunities. With NIL rules changing, athletes now have the chance to benefit financially from their skills and popularity, providing them with a way to earn income and build their personal brands while still in school. This can also help level the playing field for athletes who may not come from financially privileged backgrounds, giving them a chance to monetize their talents and hard work.

The fanbase and brand of the school they are considering attending weigh heavily in their decisions in today’s era of college athletics because those 2 factors can ultimately determine what they earn from their NIL.
