Mitch Barnhart opens up about NIL deals within UK Athletics

Kentucky AD Mitch Barnhart joined KSR this morning for what was his first speaking appearance in the last several months.

With the changing landscape of college athletics, there was a ton that fans wanted to hear from Barnhart about, including some more specifics regarding NIL deals and opportunities UK student athletes have put in place.

If you go back to the last time Barnhart spoke, it was in June when NIL rules passed. At the time, he did not ooze enthusiasm about the new rules, and he gave a little insight to KSR this morning as to why that was.
