Tigers, Gamecocks team up in hopes to pass NIL bill in South Carolina

There are not many things that will cause Clemson and South Carolina to come together. But when there is a proposed bill that can protect their student-athletes in the ever-changing-world of collegiate athletics, then they will come together all the time.

A subcommittee of the Senate Education Committee in South Carolina gave its preliminary approval for a Name, Image and Likeness bill that will allow college athletes the opportunity to engage in NIL opportunities and deals through a third party.

The bill has now been referred to the Committee on Education. The bill is proposed to go into law on July 1, 2022.
