Name, Image, Likeness (NIL): high School to College

What High School Athletes Should Know About NCAA's NIL Rules

Understanding Name, Image & Likeness

What High School Athletes
Need to Know

The new NIL rules are a big change in college sports. High school athletes should know these rules and how they could affect their future in sports. There are benefits to NIL rights, but also risks and challenges to consider. Stay informed and make smart decisions to protect your future.


NCAA rules prevented college athletes from earning money from their name, image or likeness. Lawsuits led to changes in 2019, allowing athletes to profit from NIL rights. Updated guidelines were released in July 2021 to clarify how athletes can benefit.

NCAA Guidelines

The NCAA has new guidelines affecting endorsement deals for student-athletes. Athletes must disclose endorsements to their schools, logos are banned, and fair pay emphasized. It’s crucial that high school athletes stay informed to make informed decisions and navigate the complex landscape of college athletics. Be prepared for opportunities and challenges ahead!


College athletes can now earn money from endorsements, merchandise, and social media without risking their eligibility. School logos and athletic performance payments are still banned.

Pros and Cons

Athletes in college can now manage their finances by profiting off their name, image, and likeness (NIL). There is a possibility of exploitation, which has made it crucial for advocacy groups and policymakers to step in and safeguard their interests.

More Valuable Information on NCSA's College Recruiting Website

“Female athletes can visit the NCSA college recruiting website for info on the NCAA’s new Name, Image, and Likeness policy.”

The policy, approved on June 30, 2021, allows all NCAA D1, D2, and D3 student-athletes to be compensated for their NIL, regardless of their state’s NIL law.

However, student-athletes should be aware of state, college/university, and conference-specific rules that may still apply. 

College athletes can take advantage of NIL opportunities, but high school athletes should be careful as it may affect their eligibility. To learn more about NIL guidelines for female soccer players, click the NCSA link.
