Curious to see how this plays out. You'd think there would be stories of various college athletes signing deals, and that will start a brave new world in recruiting.

Looks like Edgar got some $. I'm curious about this and the terms he left the Illinois team on since they chose to retweet this.

Also, if Edgar can make $$$, no way Kofi wouldn't make bank

I thought the $1 was more of symbolism, but you might be right. I think this brand probably sent a $1 bill to a bunch of athletes in light of this announcement. Which makes sense why an unknown name (no disrespect) like Edgar could even get $
Who knows. Could be $1 plus some free product. I have a hunch a lot of the lesser known/marketable guys are going to primarily receive free stuff rather than significant amounts of cash.

I am curious out how effective this advertising would be. I am not some big booster, looking for an legal way to throw money at a player. But, if effective, I would happily pay them to market my business, instead of some other source. I just signed up for "openendorse", to see.

Yes, a Champaign area company needs to hire Kofi to endorse their product, while Kofi announces he is coming back to the Illini!

Something like..."Yes, I'm buying this four wheel drive truck because you know how bad the winters are in Champaign. AND YES, I'm coming back for another year!!!!!!!!!!!

Social media platforms are about to become total ad-fests. Ad-blockers won't save you from college athletes plugging sponsored products and asking their followers to share those posts.

Can boosters guarantee these kids money in highschool and claim it as an endorsement? Like I'm sure a Kentucky booster would send Chet Holmgren a couple hundred thousand at least to play there. Just wondering what the NCAA would say about that.

No they can't. But when incoming freshmen score significant deals early the message will be understood

If Kofi really comes back, I hope he capitalizes on his return announcement. That's $$$
