NIL means Name, Image, and Likeness. Not to get paid under the table just because Billy Bob wants you to go his school. That will still be illegal. The schools can't pay them. The booster can't pay them directly, but sure, they will be giving them $$$ to endorse their car dealerships or restaurants or whatever. I think it's going to be nuts at first, but somebody will have to regulate it. Not sure the NCAA is the organization for that job right now since they are powerless.
If they can sell their likeness, what's to stop boosters from buying a million t-shirts of 1 player?
Nothing I guess. But if a kid can sell his own t-shirts and he sells over a million on Amazon, good for him/her.
