We’ve already seen a number of high school athletes across the country sign NIL deals. Sisters Alyssa and Gisele Thompson signed Nike’s first high school NIL deal last year. Bella Rasmussen became the first female high school football player to sign an NIL deal.

Other national companies like Kay Jewelers, Panini America, College Hunks Hauling Junk, Spalding, and Puma have all gotten in on the high school NIL market as well. There’s no reason to believe NIL won’t become a lucrative market for high school athletes as well, particularly those with a strong social following.
