Texas Tech women’s basketball is making major headlines after the signing of a huge NIL deal.
On Thursday, a sports marketing and management agency by the name of Level 13 announced that it has committed to signing each player on the Lady Red Raiders basketball team to an NIL deal worth $25,000 per player.
This historic deal makes Texas Tech the first school in the Big 12 to have their entire women’s basketball team sign an NIL deal of this magnitude.
“We are proud to announce that Level 13 Agency has committed $25,000.00 per Lady Raider in the Women’s Basketball Locker Room! We see you, we hear you, and we support you, ladies!” Level 13 said in a statement.
As part of this deal, the Texas Tech women’s basketball team is expected to conduct community service and charity work around Lubbock.
This deal was announced just two weeks after the Texas Tech football team and the Matador Club partnered to sign the entire football team to a one-year, $25,000 NIL contract.
