BATON ROUGE, La (BRPROUD)- The NCAA announced on July 1 that student-athletes can now benefit from their name, image, and likeness. The rule change also states that college student-athletes can get paid from their social media accounts, autograph signings, and any other financial opportunities.
Louisiana music mogul, Percy “Master P” Miller’s son, Hercy Miller, was quick to take advantage of the rule change made by the NCAA’s board of directors and signed a $2 million deal. The 19-year-old basketball player is headed to Tennessee State, an HBCU in Nashville.
“I am proud of my son, He’s a superstar”, Miller said on his Instagram page.
Hercy Miller signed a $2 million endorsement deal with Web Apps America. He will serve as the brand ambassador for the technology company which focuses on web, mobile, and augmented reality development.
The tech company is committed to supporting HBCUs (Historically Black Colleges and Universities) in the United States.
