Lone Star NIL, a collective that works with Texas’ homegrown athletes who compete at any of the state’s 116 colleges and universities, has partnered with Basepath, an operations software provider.
The collective is the first of its kind.
With the partnership, Lone Star NIL will utilize Basepath’s athlete operation software to help assign tasks to athletes, analyze their activity on its dashboard, and automate contracts through a DocuSign integration. Athletes will also have access to the company’s new wallet app, where they can find their deals, income, tax estimations, and financial support in one place.
“We are very excited to announce this partnership, as Basepath is the leading NIL operations software provider,” said LONE STAR NIL Founder and CEO Tom Burnett. “Basepath allows for a forward-thinking approach when connecting student-athletes with NIL deals, along with a user-friendly platform for both LONE STAR NIL and our partner student-athletes.”
Lone Star aims to promote enrollment, retention, and graduation at in-state schools while partnering the athletes with local charities and communities. The collective also aims to partner its athletes with exclusively Texas-based companies, large and small.
“We are incredibly excited to announce this partnership with LONE STAR NIL,” said Basepath CEO and Co-Founder Thomas Thomas Jr. “Their innovative model, focused on Texas student-athletes and businesses is one that will drive tremendous value to the entire Texas athletics community.”
