Sports Illustrated Says NCAA Ready to Crack Down on NIL Abuse


Sports Illustrated says that NCAA officals are ready to issue a warning to wealthy boosters who are using name, image and likeness (NIL) ventures to involve themselves in recruiting.

The new rules will focus on current NCAA bylaws that prohobit boosters from participating in recruiting. Under current NCAA rules, boosters are representatives of their school's athletic department, and are not supposed to associate with, or persuade prospects.

“We let things get out of hand,” one NCAA official told Sports Illustrated. “We have to get boosters out of contacting recruits and bartering with them.”

NIL has paved the way for boosters to get involved in recruiting by striking deals with athletes to either endorse their business, or seek commercial opportunities from a collection of donors.
