NIL is the same as in football - Name, Image and Likeness.  It's  way for college athletes to make money selling themselves while they are in school and remain eligible as "amateur" athletes.  This was against NCAA rules a few years ago, until they lost a court case.

Do recall back in the day when schools and athletes were penalized for non-show jobs and under the table cash?  It's all legit now.  Boosters can now get a kid a car and its legit NIL sponsorship.

Somem schools are encouraging a shared approach...every member of the benefits but at lower financial value, while others are totally hands off and letting the stars cut their own deals.

Word on the street is that Suriano signed with UM too late for any scholarship cash, so some boosters put together a 50K payment toward his grad school tuition split between 2 terms.
