Recruits & Transfers: Reveiwing the NCPA’s Official NIL Ratings is a Must!
The NCPA applauds each state that has adopted an NIL law. However, there are big differences in these laws that you should be aware of. Depending on which college you choose to attend, you may be sued for an NIL violation, can have up to 75% of your sponsorship money given away to others, can be excluded from college sports jersey and video game deals… or you may have the freedom to engage in many NIL deals without negative consequences. The NCPA's Official NIL Ratings will help you navigate these issues.
The NCPA was a primary force in opening up state NIL laws nationwide and helped arrange a lawsuit that forced the NCAA to lift its ban on college athlete representation and NIL pay. We are now providing free access to the NCPA's Official NIL Ratings to empower you with information about state NIL laws that can have a significant effect on your ability to earn NIL pay as a college athlete.
There are currently NIL laws in 28 states and these laws have big differences in college athletes’ NIL freedoms. The remaining states have no NIL laws, which means colleges in those states can make decisions about your NIL freedoms that can be helpful or harmful. Because every college athlete should have the same legal rights and freedoms afforded to other students and Americans, the NCPA will continue to push for the best NIL laws in all states. If you plan to pursue NIL pay as a college athlete, then reviewing the NCPA's Official NIL Ratings is a must. Be sure to check our ratings frequently because we will work to update these ratings as laws are adopted or are changed.
