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.
