Name, Image, and Likeness (NIL)

Protect Your Future with Sutton's expert NIL Vetting Process

Name, Image, and Likeness (NIL) allows all NCAA D1, D2 and D3 student-athletes to be compensated for their NIL. The NCAA’s interim NIL policy has created an entirely new industry, which has grown drastically since its inception.
