Quinn Ewers is getting paid.
As first reported by Darren Rovell of The Action Network, Ewers has signed a multi-year deal with GT Sports Marketing that will pay him more than $1 million for autograph signings during his collegiate career. According to ESPN's Tom Van Haaren, it's a three-year deal that will pay Ewers $1.4 million over the length of the contract.
JUST IN: Athlete autograph giant GTSM has signed its first big NIL deal: A multi-year deal with @QuinnEwers, who finished HS a year early to go to Ohio State to be able to cash in on NIL.— Darren Rovell (@darrenrovell) August 31, 2021
Sources say deal negotiated by @Rubicontalent/@SPORTSTARSNYC is worth more than $1M+.
It's the third known NIL deal for Ewers since he decided to reclassify and join Ohio State this year in order to begin profiting from his name, image and likeness. Before he even arrived at Ohio State, Ewers announced a partnership with Holy Kombucha. Over the weekend, Ricart Automotive announced a partnership with Ewers, who received a new truck from the Columbus-based car dealer.
Ewers will begin his Ohio State career as a backup quarterback for the Buckeyes and isn't guaranteed to play at all this season after just arriving on campus less than three weeks ago, but that isn't stopping him from quickly making money off of his fame.
