On Tuesday, the state of Missouri signed a bill into law that will allow athletes in the state to profit from their names, images and likenesses.

That decision will have an impact on Mizzou athletes, who can now make money for sponsorship deals and other things that were previously banned by the NCAA.

After the state approved the bill, Mizzou athletic director Jim Sterk issued a statement, which you can see below:

“Today’s signing of Missouri’s NIL bill ensures our student-athletes will continue to have opportunities to cultivate and benefit from their personal brands,” the statement reads. “On behalf of all our student-athletes, I would like to express our gratitude to Governor Parson, Senators Caleb Rowden, Greg Razer and Holly Rehder, Representatives Kurtis Gregory, Wes Rogers, Nick Schroer, and Wade Wallingford, and many other elected officials who spoke in support of and voted for the NIL bill. Mizzou Athletics looks forward to continuing to educate our student-athletes on the NIL process and providing them with the resources necessary to maximize their brands through our TradeMark program.”

Now, we’ll have to wait and see what sort of deals Mizzou players sign. With St. Louis and Kansas City both just a couple of hours away, there should be a nice market for Tiger stars.
