Tulsa NIL Attorney Iciss Tillis in Sportico - Why You Should Care About High School Athletes Earning Nil Money
December 21, 2022
The NIL policy is personal for me. I missed out on a lot of opportunities in the late 90s when I was a high school basketball star and an All-American power forward at Duke University. Back then, players like me who went on to become first-round WNBA draft picks didn’t have control over our name, image and likeness until we turned pro. If the NIL policy existed when I was in school, I would have not only been able to monetize my own popularity as a top female basketball player from Oklahoma, but I also would have added to my overall NIL value because I am the daughter of the greatest heavyweight boxing champion, James “Quick” Tillis.
