New site allows fans to support him
Chicago, IL, August 22, 2022 – Belleville resident and current University of Illinois football offensive lineman Jordyn Slaughter has officially signed a ‘name, image, likeness’ (NIL) deal with NextName which offers fans the opportunity to support him through the sale of his personal digital collectibles, also known as non-fungible tokens (NFT). Like a digital trading card, the collectibles are robust media files with images, music, school logo, and playing statistics. Slaughter directly receives the majority of proceeds from the sale of his digital collectibles.
NextName is excited to welcome Slaughter to the platform and invites fans to show their support by purchasing his digital collectibles here:
Slaughter attended Althoff Catholic High School in Belleville where he was a three-star recruit by 247Sports, ESPN and Rivals. In high school, he was ranked the No. 75 offensive tackle in the nation by ESPN and ranked the No. 20 recruit in Illinois by 247Sports. Slaughter chose to play at Illinois over several other universities because he wanted to represent his sate. He redshirted his freshman year and missed his 2021
sophomore season due to an injury. The Illini fans look forward to seeing him on the field during his junior year.
NextName is a platform designed to support college athletes and teams through the sale of digital collectibles. With just a few clicks, fans can purchase collectibles bearing the name, image, and likeness (NIL) of their favorites. In doing so, NextName provides fans an opportunity to help student-athletes maximize their personal band and share in the success of college athletics.
