NCAA begins process for students-athletes to get paid

By Anthony Caruso III | Publisher

The NCAA ruled on Tuesday that they are beginning the process to allow players to monetize their name, image, and likeness. The NCAA’s governing board voted unanimously to allow this to happen.

For years, the NCAA was against players from profiting off of their name and image. Now, I’m the future, it will happen.

Michael Drake, the chair of the board and president of The Ohio State University, said that all three Divisions need to “immediately consider updates to relevant bylaws and policies for the 21st century.”

“We must embrace change to provide the best possible experience for college athletes,” Drake said. “Additional flexibility in this area can and must continue to support college sports as a part of higher education. This modernization for the future is a natural extension of the numerous steps NCAA members have taken in recent years to improve support for student-athletes, including full cost of attendance and guaranteed scholarships.”
