NCAA’s D1 Council hopes athlete pay rules hashed out in June

Sports

INDIANAPOLIS (AP) — The NCAA Division I Council plans to act on legislative proposals next month that would allow athletes to be paid to be sponsors, social media influencers and product endorsers.

The council will take up the issue at its meeting June 22-23 with the goal of having legislation in place by July 1.

That would provide greater consistency in the name, image and likeness opportunities available to student-athletes nationally as state laws become effective on or around that date.
