The conversation around name, image and likeness (NIL) has been going on throughout the 21st Century. The NCAA reached a point in 2021 where student athletes across the country became allowed to monetize off NIL and since then it's taken over the division-1 college sports landscape. Today, top talent such as University of Alabama quarterback and reigning Heisman Trophy winner Bryce Young is making millions of dollars thanks to endorsement deals, but it is a lot to be able to manage while also being a student athlete.

UCLA redshirt-junior quarterback Chase Griffin is a student athlete executive in residence with UniWorld Group. He has credited UWG with helping set him up for his future as he is learning more about the media agency business and preparing for a career post-football.

Chase sat down with Justin Paura on the View from the Grandstand podcast to discuss how and why he decided to team up with UWG and explain what NIL has done for him and will do for other student athletes like him. The full interview will also air during MediaVillage's Advancing Diversity Week stream, from October 17-20 on MediaVillage.com. Click here to register.
