NCAA Revising Ways Athletes Can Profit During College Career
ESPN is reporting that the top decision makers of the NCAA voted unanimously to start modifying rules to where collegiate athletes can profit from their names, images and likenesses.
They want to make sure though that there is a difference between collegiate and pro sports.
NCAA wants to hopefully have these rules in place and implemented by January 2021.
This comes after pressure from California lawmakers passing a law that college athletes in that state will be able to make money off their name and likeness starting in a few years.
Plus, Congress even wanted the NCAA to change the rules for athletes and even threatened to intervene.
There is still a long way to go but this is the step in the right direction for collegiate athletes to make money while in college.
Also, this brings back hope that maybe EA Sports can now possibly bring back one of the most popular video game franchises NCAA Football and Basketball.
