Figured I might as well start a thread on this topic.

From Sportico today some interesting points especially with regards to INTL playersOne high-profile NIL complication has flown under the radar. More than 20,000 athletes come from abroad each year to play in the NCAA. But it’s possible that athletes on student visas won’t be able to make money off NIL at all. The ComplicationCollege athletes who come to U.S. schools from abroad usually require “F” visas, which allow them into the country for educational purposes.  Athletes with these visas can only “do limited on-campus employment here and there,” Robert Seiger, an immigration lawyer and partner of Archer & Greiner P.C.’s sports law practice, told FOS.NIL laws will allow athletes to sign endorsements, work at or run sports clinics, and even sign autographs. But if international athletes participate in those deals, U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services could revoke their student visas.“There’s no question in my mind that that government entity would be like, ‘Wait a minute,’” Seiger said.Potential SolutionsIn the immediate future, there’s an easy “solution” for international athletes who don’t want to lose their visas: Don’t profit from NIL.The way the government “ultimately perceives” NIL activity could determine whether international athletes can sign NIL deals, Seiger said. Perhaps immigration authorities will decide that NIL compensation falls under the umbrella of limited, on-campus employment.Otherwise, advocacy and lobbying could successfully push for new laws that would allow athletes to keep their F visa status.If they’re making money, could athletes apply for visas as professionals? That possibility is a long way away. The NCAA has spent millions in court fighting for amateur status, and shows no signs of giving that up anytime soon. “This is like a low-simmer issue because there’s so much uncertainty,” Seiger said. When laws take effect, “I think it’ll be an issue that comes more to the front.”“Like, OK, now we’re faced with the reality.”

I don't understand the inner-workings of the NIL, how kids can make money and for what purpose, and how that can possibly be leveraged by schools to recruit.  But as a general proposition, given Repole's business and what he does for a living, isn't this a way he could really really help us on the recruiting front with probably minimal impact to his bottom line/business?

This is an excellent move to prevent "funny business" and also to help athletes in gaining an access to those interested by having a meet and greet.  Don't know how much sponsor enthusiasm in NYC with all the pro athletes in the market.  However in areas of the country with no pro sports, this is a great opportunity for players (eg., Alabama businesses will be lining up at the door).

Smart move. I know a few folks in the Illinois athletic department and they are top notch and will ensure their student athletes can do this the right way.

St. John's is planning to have its own guidelines for student-athletes to profit off their Name, Image and Likeness starting Thursday, granted NIL gets approved as expected tomorrow. Told there will be very few limitations. #sjubb

He noted they'll limit gambling, alcohol and tobacco companies and areas like that.
