Will Anderson Jr. talks NIL as he takes a proactive approach to his own brand
Will Anderson Jr. is one of the athletes at the peak of the name, image and likeness landscape in college football as the Alabama linebacker is arguably the best defensive player in the country.
During an appearance on “The Paul Finebaum Show,” Anderson shared his thoughts on NIL, and his involvement and desire to help younger players.
“I think it’s a great idea,” he said. “There’s a lot of people to help get money, not only for themselves, but for their families that this age that we are in right now, and help a lot of family members out, that’s how I look at it. It’s an opportunity to start setting stuff up for later in my living years. Put some money over here in this account for anything that’s going on.”
Anderson said he’s also trying to take over his own brand and agency, with the help of NFL players.
“It’s really just for young players that need help,” he said. “I know for me and my family, we didn’t know too much about contracts and stuff like that. This brand, this A3 is going to help young athletes around the world and their parents get help.”
