The highest predicted earner in women’s college basketball is Angel Reese, who won the NCAA championship recently and caused a stir on social media.
Reese now has a NIL (Name, Image, and Likeness) worth of $1.3 MILLION, according to On3 Sports’ announcement on Tuesday. The 20-year-old LSU Tiger athlete is therefore anticipated to earn the most money of any player in women’s collegiate basketball. Reese is also said to have earned over 2 million social media followers “since the beginning of March Madness” in addition to her million-dollar value. Reese is booked, busy, and doing her thing, as seen by a fast glance on her Instagram. From Bayou Barbie merchandise to NIL jerseys to a partnership with Raising Canes! She stated during a post-championship interview on the I Am Athlete podcast that she is “in no rush” to join the WNBA.
After originally turning down the invitation, the athlete revealed last week that she and her LSU colleagues will be visiting the White House. The invitation was turned down after Jill Biden proposed the Iowa Hawkeyes, the team that finished second, should accompany the LSU Tigers on their honorary visit. Since then, President Biden has made it clear that only the men’s and women’s NCAA champions will be attending. – Steve Sijenyi
