NEW: In a victory for college athletes, SCOTUS unanimously invalidates a portion of the NCAA’s “amateurism” rules. The court says the NCAA can no longer bar colleges from providing athletes with education-related benefits such as free laptops or paid post-graduate internships.

This is another major victory for student-athletes and a blow to the NCAA’s amateurism model. ESPN’s Dan Murphy spoke with attorney Jeffrey Kessler about the court’s decision.

“It’s tremendous to win this 9-0,” Kessler said. “Hopefully it will be the major next step on the road to a true fair competitive system for these athletes. It should have positive effects immediately on NIL. We look forward to a world that’s better for college athletes today than it was yesterday.”

With the Supreme Court’s decision and new Name, Image, Likeness policies set to take effect as early as July 1, the entire structure of the NCAA is changing significantly in favor of student-athletes.
