NIL NETWORK INSIGHT
Recap: High school senior and UConn basketball commit, Azzi Fudd, is regarded as one of the top 2021 athletes that will be able to monetize her NIL after the new legislation goes into place. Fudd has 150,000 instagram followers and a No. 1 national ranking in women’s basketball.
Observations: The upcoming NCAA changes around Name, Image, and Likeness are speculated to be super advantageous for females, who don’t have as many opportunities to be a professional athlete after graduation. This is a great example of a female athlete who has built up her personal brand and is well positioned to monetize her NIL once she arrives at UConn.
With more than 150,000 Instagram followers and a No. 1 national ranking in women’s basketball, incoming UConn freshman Azzi Fudd was named one of the top prospects nationwide to make money if the NCAA changes its marketing rules.
A Washington, D.C., high school senior, Fudd is slated to matriculate at UConn in the fall.
Icon Source, a Denver-based digital marketplace that links athletes and brands, ranked Fudd with rising college stars like All American baseball player Brady House, gymnastics standout Sage Thompson and Georgia quarterback Brock Vandagriff as the top marketing prospects for 2021.
