Sounds like it's multiple companies

USU has hired a middle man. That's what they've done.

it's a platform individuals/companies can use if they want to do a deal with a student athlete. I'll be interested to see how this changes anything.

We need this to keep ourselves in a position where the top players we want to hold on to don't leave for an NIL deal somewhere else.

Sounds like a good thing to have. The easier you make it the more likely a company is to give a deal and the more likely an athlete is to get an NIL deal.

Also, I'd be willing to bet USU is paying little to nothing for this partnership. I fully expect Opendorse gets a percentage of the deals they set up, like an agent.

The problem has never been the ease or ability to do an NIL deal (there's a lot of money and companies in the valley alone), it's always been getting boosters/businesses to want to do it. What would this platform do to help solve that problem?

Hopefully they'll do some leg work to find companies. Basically be salesmen for both sides.

Or, more succinctly, we just hired a universal agent for our players.

Let's hope it's an Ari Gold clone.
