It looks like the times are changing for college athletes. College athletes can now start earning money for playing college sports. For many years now, colleges have made tons of money off the athletes who bring large crowds throughout the college year.
The new policy will allow college athletes to make money from activities like autograph signing, endorsements, and personal appearances as long as they are consistent with any applicable state law where the athlete’s school is located.
Athletes will be able to use professional service providers for such activities, and universities will be responsible for determining whether those activities are consistent with state law.
