On paper, this NIL deal makes almost too much sense.
Last Wednesday, it was announced that five-star recruit and freshman defensive back for the Alabama Crimson Tide, Ga’Quincy 'Kool-Aid' McKinstry, would be signing a NIL Deal with, you guessed it, Kool-Aid.
Ever since the rules and regulations for the NCAA's new NIL policy were introduced in July 2021, brands and players have been scrambling for ways to take advantage. McKinstry is just the latest athlete to join the growing movement.
Considered to be one of, if not the best cornerback in the 2021 signing class, Kool-Aid McKinstry hails from Birmingham, Alabama, and like so many that play football in that state, he chose to join the Crimson Tide when they made him a scholarship offer.
