  Draft Scout by Conference

  When state laws and the NCAA made it legal last year for college athletes to profit off their name, image and likeness, a University of Miami supporter fired one of the first attention-getting shots. Dan Lambert offered $500 a month to any Hurricanes scholarship football player in exchange for promoting the American Top Team mixed martial arts academy he founded, an annual outlay of more than $500,000 if everyone opted in. Now Texas Tech football players can sign up to make four times that amount.

The Matador Club, a non-profit collective organized by Texas Tech donors, plans this week to sign 100 Red Raiders football players each to one-year, $25,000 contracts. Cody Campbell, a founding member of the Matador Club board of directors, said all 85 scholarship players and 15 of the top walk-ons will be covered under the agreements. In return, they'll be expected to do community service and charitable work around Lubbock and, in the future, possibly other West Texas cities. Campbell said payments to players will be made monthly beginning the first week of August, and the community service endeavors will continue throughout the next year. - Lubbock Avalanche Journal
