Tyrell Zimmerman, who is a finance and business guru, and consultant has been involved with the NIL Name, Image, and Likeness process from the very beginning. He has worked with some of the biggest financial firms in the world, such as Merrill Lynch, Morgan Stanley, and JP Morgan Chase. He has also worked with some of the premier marketing strategists out there. He did this with the understanding of the direction that college and high school sports were heading, as it relates to Name, Image, and Likeness NIL.
On June 30, 2021, the Division 1 Board of Directors approved an interim Name, Image, and Likeness (NIL) policy. This new policy allows all NCAA D1, D2 and D3 student-athletes to be compensated for their NIL as of July 1, 2021, regardless of whether their state has a NIL law in place or not.
Tyrell, a former pro athlete, has made a life and career out of managing and mentoring high school athletes, college athletes, and pro athletes in the NFL, NBA, and MLB. With the world starting to catch on to everything that NIL entails, having an industry veteran like Tyrell Zimmerman in your corner can make a huge difference in how an athlete can and will benefit from NIL.
“We have already seen high school athletes sign NIL deals. To expect a 17 or 18 year old to be able to handle everything that comes with a NIL deal without the proper support, management, or guidance is a disservice to that athlete and their family to say the least.”, Tyrell said. Some of the top athletes in college are already making millions of dollars to date. So much has changed in college sports since Tyrell played. Tyrell said, “We were not able to make money or have NIL deals like the college players can now”.
High schools, colleges, and universities have benefited from student-athlete for far too long. Things have now changed, and student-athletes are now able to capitalize on their own names, images, and likeness. College football alone is a billion-dollar revenue industry.
