·1 min read

Florida defensive tackle Gervon Dexter made history in the SEC on Thursday. He became the first defensive lineman to sign a name, image and likeness deal. Student-athletes have been allowed to profit off NIL since July 1.

Dexter announced via Twitter that he teamed with College H.U.N.K.S. Hauling Junk & Moving. They are a moving and junk removal company for locals that is attempting to start a franchise in Gainesville, Florida. In his announcement, he wrote to followers the company is looking to hire a franchise owner.

He isn’t the only college athlete to sign a deal with this company. Miami quarterback D’Eriq King teamed with them in an agreement that is reportedly set to net King $20,000.

Besides partnering with this company, Dexter also launched his own clothing line with his T-shirts selling out the very first day. To help him manage his NIL deals, he signed with Mark Bailey and 1st Down Sports. He can also make money off the YouTube page that he has with his girlfriend.
