Alabama QB approaching 7 figures in NIL deals...


according to Nick Saban.

While speaking at the Texas HS Coaches Association convention on Tuesday, Alabama head coach Nick Saban revealed how much money Young is making because of his name, image and likeness. Well, sort of.

Saban said that Young could make somewhere in the seven-figure range just from all his NIL deals.

“Our QB has already approached ungodly numbers, and he hasn’t even played yet,” Saban said. “If I told you what it is … it’s almost seven-figures.”

While I'm happy players are getting compensated, it does feel like the beginning of the end of college sports when a single player who hasn't played yet is approaching a million in income.

Will the entire CU team approach 7 figures in NIL income? I'd guess no.

Maybe the South Park Boys will create some "Rabid Goldfish" videos for each player and write them a big check. They seem to have the pocket to make it happen.

But the number of unintended consequences this chain reaction is causing cannot be counted.
