Michigan sophomore defensive back Rod Moore is now the latest Wolverine to partner with Fans Meet Idols. The Atlanta-based company was founded in July 2020 to help student-athletes monetize their name, image and likeness by giving them a shareable storefront in a direct-to-fan marketplace. 

Moore is offering personalized Spotify playlists, autographs, recruiting advice, gaming opportunities, video messages, business promotion and other interesting content through the platform. Prices range from $14 to $299. 

Freshman Recap: Michigan DB Rod Moore

Moore appeared in 11 games and made four starts at safety for the Wolverines last season as a true freshman. He recorded a career-high nine tackles to help Michigan earn its first win over Ohio State in a decade and went on to secure a starting spot against Georgia in the College Football Playoff semifinal.

Mission — Fans Meet Idols 

Via fansmeetidols.com: “We believe the broadest opportunities for the majority of student-athletes are with their fans, which is why we created this direct-to-fan marketplace. Our mission it to help student-athletes become entrepreneurs while conditioning behaviors of following the rules and giving back to their community.

“We are led by a seasoned team of professionals with expertise in collegiate athletics, compliance, NIL, eCommerce, finance, technology and internet law.”

Moore gives his take on NIL

Moore in an April Q&A: “I don’t have a lot of NIL deals going on. I haven’t gotten into any of that yet, but I’ve seen a lot of other college athletes going around with it and generating a lot of money. I think, in a sense, it makes college athletes play harder. Because the harder you’re playing, the more you’re putting yourself out there. […] Being able to hold events like this is just a really good thing for college athletes, so they can start getting paid for their name, image and likeness.”
