Despite a tough first outing for the Georgetown Hoyas, the season must roll onward. There’s certainly no time to spare in the Name, Image, & Likeness endeavors for Georgetown student athletes. No longer is it required for college athletes to just stay in their lanes. To get the ball started, a player-partnership with G3 College and ProCamps U facilitated a meet and greet bowling event with several of the Hoyas basketball members at Pinstripes Georgetown over the weekend.
Falling behind on NIL might send any program to the gutter. If not already, NIL opportunity will soon be the kingpin of modern college basketball recruiting, and supporting the Hoyas means supporting the sponsorship and marketing endeavors of our favorite athletes.
This first major strike on the marketing for these players appears to have been a great success and a huge sign of things to come for Georgetown student athletes. Only a turkey would disagree.
For some of the more sociable players, this event was probably right up their alley. Rumor has it that the event was from 7-10 before they all split. Ok that one was pit-iful.
Here is a list of players who participated:
- Jalin Billingsley
- Chuma Azinge
- Kaiden Rice
- Donald Carey
- Collin Holloway
- Kobe Clark
- Malcolm Wilson
- Dante Harris
- Ryan Mutombo
- Tyler Beard
- Jordan Riley
- Victor Muresan
ProCamps is the company responsible for organizing the Kentucky NIL event in September. There was also an Indiana event earlier this month.
