NCAA Division I Council Recommends Interim NIL Policy

Thanks to a new NCAA council ruling, Penn State student-athletes could soon be raking in some extra dough.

The NCAA’s Division I Council voted Monday to recommend an interim policy that would let student-athletes profit off of their individual names, images, and likenesses (NIL). It would temporarily permit profiting from NIL until federal legislation passes.

Although the NCAA’s NIL policy isn’t official yet, it’s likely to be approved when the organization’s full board meets Wednesday. Once the policy receives a green light, student-athletes in all states could monetize their names, images, and likenesses starting July 1.

NCAA rules prohibiting pay-for-play and “improper inducements” will remain in effect regardless of any new policy’s enactment.

Penn State Athletics did not immediately respond to a request for comment on the Division I Council’s recommendation Monday. The university could hypothetically adopt its own policy if temporary NCAA measures get approved, but its plans are unclear.

To date, no known Penn Staters have struck any lucrative deals just yet, but Sean Clifford seems like he’s interested!
