The Cavinder Twins, Miami Hurricanes stars Hanna and Haley Cavinder, are now celebrities in their own right, having emerged as top NIL personalities over the past two years.
The sisters have over 4.5 million followers on social media and have been able to translate that into lucrative sponsorship deals.
According to On3 Sports, they rank fourth and fifth among female athletes and are worth a combined $832,000, having worked with companies such as WWE, Venmo, Boost Mobile, and LifeWallet. They’re believed to have earned over $1 million in NIL deals since the program was introduced in 2021.
As basketball players for the Hurricanes, the Cavinder Twins are quite the pair. Haley is the team’s top scorer, averaging 12.9 points per game while Hanna averages 4.0 points a contest, with the team 12-9 for the season.
The athletes were recently interviewed by SI Swim and discussed their NIL success.
“We hold each other accountable, we know what our priorities are,” Hanna explained. “I mean, I’m not gonna lie, we are busy 24/7. If we’re not doing school or basketball, NIL is next.
“Haley and I definitely have the same approach to it. Being able to work with brands that we truly believe in and represent, like Champps, WWE, LifeWallet, Cigarette Racing. We just are very similar in that aspect.”
Hanna also spoke about their approach to social media and the influence they have.
You have to be true to who you are and you can’t change the opinions that people have of you, so don’t try to. Everybody will always have assumptions or opinions of you. If you are trying to change them or you get mad about them, it’s just gonna waste your energy.
Do things for yourself and at the end of the day, you’ll live with no regrets. Just believe in yourself and continue to work hard because no matter what, your work ethic will teach you so many things in life.
The twins recently found themselves in some hot water with the NCAA as the program was fined and its coach suspended after it was discovered that they were introduced to a Miami booster.
They clapped back at the governing body with a TikTok video.WANT MORE FROM TOTALPROSPORTS? FOLLOW US ON GOOGLE NEWS.
