11 Hoosiers to join NIL collective focused on charitable endeavors, per report
A group of Indiana players are expected to sign deals with an Indianapolis NIL collective that focuses on charitable endeavors this week.
According to Zach Osterman with the Indy Star, 11 Hoosier basketball player (10 men’s and 1 women’s basketball stars) will sign with “Hoosiers for Good.” Those deals will collectively reach a total of around $425,000 and will involve 7 charities.
In exchange for the deals, the Hoosiers will agree to participate in a range of activities that include in-person appearances, social media interactions and other activities.
“It is only our second class,” HFG Director Tyler Harris told IndyStar. “I felt like we did a pretty good job with our first class, and now appearances are starting to take place, so people are starting to see things put into practice.”
According to Osterman, Hoosiers for Good seeks out in-state charities to pair with Indiana University athletes and uses the funds it raises to fund the NIL deals.
