The NCAA D1 Council is set to finally hear a proposal on Name, Image, Likeness regulations.

The Divison I Council “is expected to act on legislative proposals regarding name, image and likeness during its June 22-23 meeting.”

If approved, the proposals would go into effect on July 1, the same day that some state laws begin to go into effect around the country.

Here are just a few of the key points of the proposal the council will be looking at.

– Allow student-athletes to use their name, image and likeness to promote camps and clinics, private lessons, their own products and services, and commercial products or services.

– Allow student-athletes to be paid for their autographs and personal appearances.

– Allow student-athletes to crowdfund for nonprofits or charitable organizations, catastrophic events and family hardships, as well as for educational expenses not covered by cost of attendance.

This would be a huge step for college athletics, and one that is quite frankly, long overdue. Let’s see how this turns out in June.
