Five-star quarterback Matt Zollers is making some major moves in the NIL space.

The Missouri commit and the No. 31 recruit in the nation, according to the On3 Industry Ranking, inked an NIL deal with Westwood Home Services, a service home repair and handyman resource. Located in western Pennsylvania, near Zollers’ hometown of Royersford, the partnership marks the company’s first foray into NIL.

In exchange for commercial appearances and social media collaborations, Zollers has been handed the keys to a Dodge Challenger. He will use the vehicle during this summer and fall at Spring-Ford High School before he enrolls at Mizzou.

Zollers is repped in NIL by Aurum Sports’ agent Joe Gazza. Pennsylvania is one of 36 local athletic associations that allow athletes to participate in NIL deals on the high school level. 

The 6-foot-3.5, 203-pound quarterback is still in communication with Pitt and Penn State. But he’s been locked in with Mizzou since his commitment to the Tigers in April. Set to compete at the Elite 11 Finals, Zollers is the No. 5 quarterback in the 2025 cycle.

“It feels great to have an easy summer,” he recently told On3’s Blue and White Illustrated. “The last summer with my friends before everything goes to football. It feels great to know where I’m going and to have a clear mind. I’m taking my OV [to Missouri] June 21-23, the Elite 11 and my high school stuff.”

Matt Zollers building out NIL brand

Mat Zollers attended last week’s On3 Elite Series, a seminar educating the top 2025 high school football recruits on NIL, entrepreneurship, and planning for life after football. As a junior at Spring-Ford, he threw for a school-record 2,917 yards with 37 touchdowns to two interceptions in 2023.

Missouri beat out Alabama, Georgia, Penn State and Pittsburgh in his recruitment. Zollers said the difference maker was his relationships in Columbia.

“It was definitely the connections,” he said. “I just clicked differently with the coaching staff and the players that they already have there, as well as the guys that they’re recruiting there now. It’s just where I felt most comfortable. The connections were my No. 1 thing, and I fell back on that.”

The top-ranked recruit in Pennsylvania is starting to build out his NIL brand with the help of Gaza and Aurum Sports. Zollers recently inked an NIL deal with Leaf Trading Cards, the latest high school star to sign with the brand. He joins USC quarterback commit Julian LewisFlorida quarterback DJ LagwayTennessee quarterback commit George MacIntyre and 2027 quarterback Peyton Houston.

Matt Zollers will be closing out his high school career in style, driving around in a Dodge Challenger thanks to an NIL deal with Westwood Home.
