Founded in 2021, Nothing But NIL is a full-service management company that represents collegiate athletes in all matters that involve their name, image, and likeness. We work with athletes to improve their social media outreach, compose press releases about their accomplishments, and help them find endorsements while protecting their privacy.
In the new market of NIL, Nothing But NIL is changing the game when it comes to leveraging brands and helping athletes take advantage of the platform that they’ve worked hard to create. No athlete is identical to their teammate which is why we believe in bringing opportunities to our clients that are specifically tailored to their personalities and interests. Our industry knowledge and wide network allow Nothing But NIL to help student athletes maximize their potential with their name, image, and likeness.
The NCAA (National Collegiate Athletic Association) has approved an interim name, image, and likeness (NIL) policy. As of July 1, 2021, all NCAA Division I, Division II, and Division III student-athletes will be able to be compensated for their NIL, regardless of whether their state has a NIL law in place or not.
The NCAA doesn’t override state, college/university, or conference-specific NIL rules. So, student-athletes should review the NIL rules in the state where their school is located, and check with their athletic department for any specific rules their school has regarding non-interference during non-instructional time.
All student-athletes at Division I, Division II, and Division III, whether their state has a compensatory or non-compensatory NIL law in place, will be allowed to receive any form of compensation for their NIL as of July 1, 2021. That means you can begin to create advertising, marketing campaigns, and product launches that feature your most valuable asset, your star athlete, with total confidence he or she will not be able to be negatively impacted by any use of his or her name, image or likeness.
The NCAA has announced that they will not interfere with the enforcement of NIL laws by individual states. Therefore, under this new NCAA policy, student-athletes from states without NIL laws will still be able to receive compensation for their NIL.
