Wednesday Headlines: NCAA to crack down on NIL collectives

You knew it was coming.

College athletics have taken a massive turn over the last two years. The introduction of Name, Image and Likeness deals has made an incredible impact on how athletes are recruited through both the high school process and transfer portal.

Naturally, some programs have larger boosters than others. However, that may not be as valuable for much longer.

Per Sports Illustrated’s Ross Dellenger, “College leaders plan a crackdown on NIL collectives.”

Dellenger’s story, which can be found here, details the NCAA’s plan for their “crackdown.”

While Kentucky is arguably the largest college basketball brand in the country, and their football brand has rapidly grown over the last few years, it doesn’t appear this will impact the Wildcats.

With the transfer portal becoming increasingly popular and some college athletes chasing the largest amount of NIL money they can receive, a “crackdown” does sound interesting. Please leave your thoughts below in the comment section.
