Jackson State defensive end becomes first college athlete to sign endorsement deal

Hours after college athletes across the country were officially able to profit off their name and likeness, Jackson State defensive end Antwan Owens made NCAA history.
Owens on Thursday — just after midnight — became the first athlete to sign an endorsement deal.
As first reported by Sports Illustrated, the Georgia Tech graduate transfer inked a deal with 3 Kings Grooming, a Black-owned hair product business.
“Somebody pinch me!” Owens said. “This is something that’s going to be life-changing, generationally life-changing.”

This may hurt recruiting for small HBCU’s or HBCU’s in general. Now it’s going to become more of a “What can you do for me” with recruits.

Michael Strahan and Deion Sanders are teaming up again to benefit Jackson State student-athletes.
SMAC Entertainment, the multi-dimensional talent management, music, branding, sponsorship, business incubator and production company co-founded by Michael Strahan and Constance Schwartz-Morini, has announced it has received student-athlete marketing commitments from WorkForce Software, Simply Crowns, and Madison Healthplex Performance.
"In the wake of the recent Supreme Court ruling and announced changes to NIL enforcement, these brands are making strides to level the playing field by choosing to align directly with HBCU student-athletes, beginning with student-athletes at Jackson State University. These are the first of many NIL-related marketing partnerships that SMAC will be forging in the weeks ahead," SMAC Entertainment said in a release.
