Possible college basketball games for PS4 or XBox?

Recommended Posts

Now that college players can get "paid" , does that mean they can use them on video games????    Or does the O'Bannon rule stay in place?

The market doesn’t seem big enough. Imagine how many players are getting a share of the revenue compared to sales. College football is a maybe due to, college basketball is almost a definite no.

As much as I would like it, it probably will be a no. Val Ackerman, commissioner of the Big East, was talking about this earlier in the week and stressed that jerseys with names, as well as video games, would be pretty difficult. This is because under the proposed rule changes, players have to individually negotiate endorsements and compensation for NIL. A videogame would require a collective bargaining agreement for compensation, which could lead to what the NCAA doesn’t want: a player’s union.
