  Draft Scout by Conference

  Kansas State quarterback Skylar Thompson, who had waited his whole career for an opportunity to cash in on his college football fame, was a little more cautious. But on Wednesday, one day before reporting for his final preseason training camp, Thompson officially joined an increasing number of college athletes and dipped his toe into the name, image and likeness (NIL) pool for the first time. Thompson's public appearance at Salina's Long McArthur Ford - Lee is the dealership's general manager - was the first step in a six-month endorsement deal with the company that also includes radio and television commercials, among other things.

"It has been a tremendous opportunity for all of us student-athletes," Thompson said while signing autographs and taking pictures with fans in the dealership's showroom. "I feel like it has been a long time coming, that it should have been passed, but I'm glad I get to capitalize on it a little bit here for my senior year. "But I think the biggest thing for me is, yes, it's a great opportunity for us, but my focus is on winning football games this year. That's the most important piece of the puzzle to me, and this is just a cool opportunity." Thompson and his teammates begin practicing for the upcoming season Friday. - Topeka Capital Journal
