On July 1st, the NCAA announced it student-athletes can now benefit from their name, image, and likeness. The athletes wasted zero time in making some serious cash.
Percy “Master P” Miller’s son, Hercy Miller, is headed to Tennessee State, an HBCU in Nashville, with a sizable addition to his bank account. The 19-year-old basketball player signed a $2 million endorsement deal with Web Apps America. He will serve as the brand ambassador for the technology company which focuses on web, mobile, and augmented reality development.
“I am proud of my son, he is a leader on and off the court. Working with a technology company as a student-athlete is a first deal of its kind. Hercy will be able to increase the awareness of the HBCU system on a global level,” says Master P.
Hercy Miller adds, “I am proud to represent a company focused on technology, which is our future. We have a suite of apps that we will be launching in the very near future targeting HBCU students and student-athletes covering topics from financial literacy to healthy eating to games to networking.”
He continues, “This is a blessing. July 21st will be my first official Life Skills & Basketball Camp, which will be free to the young kids in the community. We will also be giving away back-to-school supplies. I hope this endorsement will open up more opportunities for more NCAA student-athletes.”
It was just back in April when Hercy Miller and the Minnehaha Academy won the 2021 Minnesota State Class AAA championship.
