I’m joined this week by Darren Heitner, a Florida attorney who helped draft and promote Florida’s initial NIL legislation to talk about where we’re at currently with NCAA, state and federal legislation.
As of the publication of this episode, five states have NIL laws that go into effect on July 1, 2021, with several other states still pushing to pass legislation with the same effective date. We talk about Florida nearly changing its effective date, why some states are still holding out and what the landscape will look like if the NCAA or Congress doesn’t enact something for this school year.
Darren and I also discuss what we think the marketplace might look like as student athletes as the NIL era begins, how it might impact things like recruiting and more.
