Name, Image, and Likeness (NIL) is one of the hottest topics in college sports. NCAA athletes were previously prohibited from taking advantage of themselves without losing their eligibility, but rule changes have effectively erased those restrictions, changing the landscape of college sports. Players can now accept money from businesses in exchange for their use in products or advertisements, and they can also promote themselves or businesses in public appearances.

This is NIL’s first big news from Minnesota.
