The first player in Clemson football history to sign with an agency and still be eligible to play college sports is QB D.J. Uiagalelei.

Uiagalelei, the sophomore quarterback from Inland Empire, California, announced that he had signed a deal with Vayner Sports on Friday afternoon.

Uiagalelei revealed that he would be working with his family and the agency to promote his brand and pursue what potential options he may have in name, image and likeness (NIL).
