These South Dakota college athletes who have NIL offers
It’s been just over a year since college athletes have had the opportunity to capitalize on their own name, image and likeness, and many across South Dakota State and the University of South Dakota have taken advantage of it. .

Here’s a sampling of some of the Jackrabbits and Coyotes taking advantage of the new rules. Note: This is not a complete list, as data on athletes with NIL offers has not been released by universities.
