NIL: Power 5 commissioners urge congress to take action

The Energy 5 convention commissioners say boosters are inducing highschool and switch athletes to attend their affiliated universities with “funds inaccurately labeled as NIL,” and they’re encouraging Congress to make such actions unlawful.

In a two-page letter obtained by Sports Illustrated and sent to Sens. Tommy Tuberville (R-Ala.) and Joe Manchin (D-WV), the most powerful officials in the sport outlined how they believe NIL, or name, image and likeness, is being abused by donors and donor-led collectives across the country. The letter is in response to Tuberville and Manchin seeking feedback from stakeholders on the evolution of athlete compensation through NIL. Earlier this month, the senators announced that they plan to draft an NIL-related bill.
