Thursday evening several members of the Kentucky Wildcats Men’s Basketball team took to Twitter to make their opinion known that the NIL is about so much more than just athletes rightfully earning revenue off of their own name/brand.

The NIL is an excellent opportunity for these athletes to support charities, both local and national, as well as encourage others to join the initiative of supporting charities.

Keion Brooks, Dontaie Allen, Davion Mintz and several others posted the exact same message all within 20-25 minutes of each other.

Daimion Collins, one of the newest members of the team, also posted the message on Twitter.

It was cool seeing transfers like CJ Fredrick and Kellan Grady also join the initiative, too.

Playing on one of college basketball’s largest stages allows for premium opportunities. It looks like our Wildcats realize this and are looking forward to using their power to assist our non-profits/charities.
