Ohio State hits impressive milestone for NIL deals

Ohio State has been proactive in the Name, Image and Likeness space since it began a year ago.

The athletic department as a whole has hit an impressive milestone as a direct result. Buckeyes student athletes have signed 1,000 NIL deals since the legislation went into effect last July, according to the Ohio State NIL twitter page.

That doesn’t just include the incredible car deals C.J. Stroud and other football players have signed. It doesn’t just mean the football and hoops teams are making money. No, the athletic department as a whole has made sure every Buckeyes athlete has the chance to do NIL deals.

So the major milestone of 1,000 NIL deals this year? It’s impressive, but it’s certainly not surprising.

Five-star quarterback commit expected to camp at Ohio State next week

Ohio State has just one camp next week. Turns out it might be the biggest showcase yet for the Buckeyes future quarterback.

Five-star quarterback and Ohio State commit Dylan Raiola is expecting to be in Columbus to camp with the Buckeyes next Tuesday. It’ll be his first trip to visit the Buckeyes since he committed to Ryan Day’s program last month.

Raiola is certain to draw some other top prospects to the Buckeyes. He is already the No. 1 overall player in the 2024 class. Now he’s taking a trip to Columbus to camp with the Buckeyes coaching staff next week.
