Georgia QB JT Daniels indicators advertising and marketing settlement | School soccer
ATHENS, Georgia – A week into the era of name, image and likeness, a Georgia player has reportedly landed one of the first big deals.
Georgia quarterback JT Daniels has signed a deal with Everett Sports Marketing, the company’s president Dan Everett confirmed on Tuesday. The Greenville, SC-based company has also made a pact with North Carolina quarterback Sam Howell. Both players are now featured on the ESM website, which includes professional athletes such as Nick Chubb, Sony Michel, D’Andre Swift, Mac Jones and Jonathan Taylor.
Everett declined to discuss Daniel’s deal in detail on Tuesday. However, in other interviews, he has been quoted as saying that he expects the top earning potential of college football’s top players to be between $ 100,000 and seven-digit dollars.
So far, most of the deals featured by Georgia players have been comparatively modest. Offensive linemen Jamaree Salyer and Tate Ratledge and tight end Darnell Washington are among several UGA players featured on social media selling Krystal’s new bacon cheeseburgers. Outside linebacker Nolan Smith also announced an upcoming skills camp he is holding in Savannah this week. Some Bulldogs market their own T-shirts and clothing lines, many others offer their services for appearances and various “cameos”.
But Daniels, who will start under the center for the Bulldogs next season, is capable of big bucks. The fourth-year junior from Irvine, Calif., Finished QB1 for Georgia in the last four games last season, winning every game and completing 67% of his passes for 1,231 yards and 10 touchdowns with just two interceptions. Injury aside, he will lead the expected top 10 team in the Bulldogs into a season where they are considered serious contenders for reaching the college football playoffs.
ESM has a long and productive history with UGA athletes. Returning to quarterback Aaron Murray, Everett’s group were often the first to stand up for the Bulldogs’ most high-profile players to mediate money-making opportunities between them and the signing of their first employment contracts with NFL teams. Typically, they do this by organizing autograph sessions, soccer camps, and gigs.
