How much would Joe Burrow make from NIL? His father delivers two-word answer
The Burrow family did not shy away from commenting on the news of the day related to name, image and likeness in college sports, and how athletes could profit while still in college.
Jimmy Burrow told Jacques Doucet that his son, Joe, the former LSU star, would’ve made “a lot” of money if this structure was in place in 2019 or before when he starred at LSU and led the Tigers to a national championship.
Joe himself also weighed in as he said he was “most excited” for non-scholarship athletes who may have been working jobs outside of sports to make ends meet. He called the significant change, “long overdue.”
Burrow is, of course, an Ohio native and known for arguably the most successful single season ever by a college QB. He was taken No. 1 overall pick by Cincinnati after he won the 2019 Heisman Trophy by the largest margin in the 85-year history of the award, and led LSU to a perfect 15-0 record and National Championship.

Exciting time for college athletes.Most excited for non-scholarship athletes who may have been working jobs outside of sports to make ends meet. Free meals, sponsored posts, signings will make their lives a lot easier. Long overdue.
