Will Levis continues to cash in on his Name, Image and Likeness. Grand Clam Collectibles announced that next week they will sign the Kentucky quarterback to the largest collectibles deal in the NCAA. Larry Vaught reports the deal is worth $100,000.
Located in Murfreesboro, TN, Grand Slam Collectibles buys and sells sports trading cards and more. Owned and operated by Nathan Burns, a bonafide member of the BBN, the deal with Levis is guaranteed for $100,000, but could be worth more.
“We believe with a successful senior season he could reach seven figures. That’s just a guess of course, but I believe in him,” Burns told Vaught. “He’s a good guy that plays the game the way I built my business and in the past 4 years we’ve sold over $40,000,000 in sports cards. I know a winner when I see it.”
In his first season as the Wildcats’ starting quarterback, Levis completed 66% of his passes for 2,826 yards and 24 touchdowns. He also scored nine touchdowns on the ground to lead Kentucky to its second 10-win season in four years.
Wan’Dale Robinson grabbed all of the NIL headlines in 2021, but Levis did all right for himself too. Since arriving on Kentucky’s campus Levis has promoted Dr. Pepper and DirecTV. The Kentucky quarterback created his own line of merchandise and arranged for his offensive linemen to eat Sunday dinners at Malone’s. Levis also used his NIL rights to give back to the community. He organized an autograph signing and auctioned off custom cleats to raise money for Western Kentucky tornado relief.
