It’s a brand new day for college athletes as new opportunities to benefit on name, image, and likeness are available for the first time in NCAA history. The NCAA adopted a new policy regarding NIL opportunities for student-athletes effective today. But while Penn State quarterback Sean Clifford is excited for the doors being open for student-athletes at all levels, Clifford is stressing the importance of every student-athlete doing their due diligence before jumping into the action.

“Excited to see lives change through these new opportunities, ” Clifford said in a statement on Twitter. “It is our duty as the first college athletes to be able to use our NIL to do our research to better ourselves, families, teams, and communities!”

The NCAA officially adopted its new policy regarding NIL on Wednesday, the same day Pennsylvania signed into law new legislation to allow every Pennsylvania student-athlete to benefit on NIL. Penn State issued a statement applauding the decision made by the state of Pennsylvania.
