The 1890 Initiative is a new NIL collective focusing on Nebraska football and volleyball players. The collective will aid players in connecting with local charities, partnerships, and networking opportunities. Nebraska Athletic Director Trev Alberts endorsed the move, saying in a statement:
“Matt has a passion for Nebraska, and we look forward to his new venture with The 1890 Initiative,” Alberts said. “As I have said many times, Nebraska is positioned to be a leader in Name, Image and Likeness, and it is a positive when there are many people and groups that want to help our student-athletes.”
