Cavalier Futures, a University of Virginia alumni-driven collective, was launched in March 2022 with a focus on supporting UVA student-athletes with career development, marketing and NIL opportunities. Cavalier Futures Executive Director Lo Davis said he’s hopeful all UVA student-athletes will be able to take advantage of the collective. That’s why Cavalier Futures partnered with Locker Room Access, a company started by former star basketball players Ty Jerome and Justin Anderson, to launch “Cav Club,” a fan subscription platform with exclusive content involving UVA student-athletes. The Cav Club launched in the summer of 2022 with features like the UVA linebacker Nick Jackson's "6 EATS" with local Charlottesville restaurant reviews and linebacker Mike Green's "4ADE" showcasing his talent as a barber. Cavalier Futures can also help elite student-athletes hire marketing agents and other representatives or service providers to assist them. The collective also says NIL is an opportunity to further strengthen and support the Charlottesville area and university through community and social activism.
