NIL laws and rules for high schools in each of the 50 plus DC states

When the NCAA language adopted just over a year ago that allowed college athletes to earn money – or take advantage, as it was called – from their name, image and likeness (NIL), it created a new chapter in amateur athletics. , one who was as innovative as he was, at times, confused.

Since then, we’ve seen NIL agreements take shape at the NCAA level, with athletes singing about sponsorships never thought possible. But the unknowns remain, and in reality, have only grown as the NIL’s questions and curiosities have been met by state rules and regulations that have been far from uniform.

What are the regulations regarding name, image and likeness in your state?

As expected, the variations make understanding or adhering to the NIL guidelines much more complex, where your state may not allow such arrangements, but the school you are about to attend does. Or, in some cases, the answer is … unclear.

Based on data from Business of College Sports, here is the current summary of NIL guidelines for all 50 states plus Washington, DC
