Top 5 richest New Jersey HS basketball players based on NIL
CAMDEN, N.J. (BVM) – New Jersey has produced plenty of talented high school basketball players in recent years and is also home to some of the best basketball prep schools in the nation. These players go on to play in college as well as the pros but now they can also make money off their talents in high school.
It’s been two years since the NJSIAA passed a rule allowing high school athletes to profit off of NIL deals. New Jersey became one of the first states to allow high schoolers to make money from NIL and many have followed suit.
