BATON ROUGE, La. (BRPROUD) — ASAP Inc., formerly known as Waitr, announced a new NIL offer that can benefit all student-athletes attending LSU.
As part of the offer, every player at LSU who accepts the NIL deal will promote the renamed delivery app on their social media accounts. Student-athletes will be compensated per order through their social media account. ASAP will partner with a leading NIL company, MatchPoint Connection, to explain the agreement to the athletes.
“It’s important for ASAP to support local communities and student-athletes of all sports as they represent their school so well,” said Carl Grimstad, CEO and Chairman of the Board of ASAP, Inc. “It’s an honor for us to celebrate these young men and women, who work hard every day to be the best in their chosen competitive arenas.”
“The goal of NILSU is for all of our student-athletes to sustainably and responsibly maximize their opportunities in the Name, Image, and Likeness space. We will continue to use NIL deals to facilitate their holistic growth, through increased education, branding, and opportunity,” said Scott Woodward, LSU Athletic Director. “We are grateful for this opportunity extended to all of our student-athletes by ASAP and for the continued support of the entire community in this new and evolving landscape.”
