    She probably still has to wear Nike gear on the court in official UConn games. The NIL thing doesn't mean athletes get to wear their individual sponsor's brand in competition.
    Of course she has to wear Nike on the court... anyways curious where this leads.

    Her deal was with StockX. Would Nike consider them a competitor?
    They are shoes....Nike is the type to take a dim view of this,

    Doesn't UConn already have a shoe deal?

    How Paige Bueckers' first NIL deal could shift standards for female athlete sponsorships

    https://sports.yahoo.com/uconn-how-p...203954804.html

    Paige Bueckers, the reigning Naismith Player of the Year, signed her first major name, image and likeness (NIL) deal on Wednesday in a move that could have a long-term impact on women athletes in the collegiate and professional ranks.

    I don't know about the rest of the Big 10 but Minnesota has a roster limit for men. Irregardless of scholarships.

    I don't see Nike getting into this with Oregon track....the team already runs in Nike stuff. And who else would bother except for a pittance.

    Must be an unsubstantiated rumor. Non-scholarship athletes aren't good enough to attract that amount of money, otherwise they'd have a scholarship (possible exceptions are Ivy League and Division III, where they don't give any athletic scholarships).
    What about Oregon track and field, LSU baseball, Minnesota hockey and other big time minor sports programs for which the NCAA doesn't give enough scholarships to fill out a roster?

    All it will take is a booster or business to get burned a few times on high school recruits not panning out that they'll rethink how much they hand over to recruits in the future.

    After a few years it'll work itself out.

Think Texas, add all the abuses already extant, then multiply by . . . A LOT. Yes, some PARENTS will get very rich - I'm sure that won't be abused either.

    Will some deserving kids get a fair share of the pie? Yup, that too.
