TUSCALOOSA, Ala. (BVM) – Check out the top 5 highest NIL earners among Alabama high school football players. Alabama has some of the best football athletes in the country, which makes them marketable and opens the door for them to make money off their name, image and likeness.
High school football players in Alabama are projected to make hundreds of thousands of dollars after they enter college. That’s, of course, in large part thanks to paid sponsorship deals (booked off their success on the field and/or social media following). College athletes can also find other ways to capitalize on their name, image and likeness — like by starting their own camps or by selling their own fan gear.
Currently, high school athletes in Alabama must wait until they enroll in higher education to receive NIL compensation.
Most of the players on this list happen to be committed to Alabama. Nick Saban himself has a strong opinion on NIL. Saban told Sports Illustrated, “Guys are not going to school where they can create the most value for their future. Guys are going to school where they can make the most money.”
