More and more players are earning big money NIL deals, and many of Alabama Football’s top players are among those. Let’s look at the NIL evaluations for some of the Tide’s players.

Alabama Football players bring in big NIL deals

Bryce Young- $3.1 Million

Of course it is expected that Bryce Young would be the highest paid college football player. With the reigning Heisman winner returning for his Junior season, he looks to continue to add to his growing bank account. According to On 3 NIL, Bryce Young has an estimated valuation of $3.1 million. This is more than half a million dollars more than USC quarterback Caleb Williams in second place. Young has NIL deals with Cashapp, Subway, Logan’s Roadhouse, and BMW of Tuscaloosa.

Will Anderson- $1.3 Million

No surprise that Will Anderson is the next Alabama Football player on the list. Anderson is ranked number seven with a valuation of $1.3 million. This may be a value lower than expected, but Will Anderson announced last season that he was not pursuing any NIL deals during the season. His goal was to focus on football, so these deals would have come just since January. Since then he joined Bryce Young in signing a deal with Tuscaloosa’s BMW dealership.

Jahmyr Gibbs- $632,000

Gibbs just joined the Alabama Football team from Georgia Tech via the transfer portal, and he’s already made the top 25 highest valued college football players with $632,000. Gibbs has earned high praise in the spring from Nick Saban and the rest of the team. With a strong starting season with the Tide, his money will only go up from here.

Jordan Battle- $615,000

Safety Jordan Battle is returning for his senior season with a $615,000 valuation. Battle finished fourth on the team in tackles and tied for first place with three interceptions. Battle will return for his senior season to finish his degree and try to contribute towards a national championship season.

Jermaine Burton- $524,000

Another star from the transfer portal, Burton joined the Alabama Football team this spring after leaving the University of Georgia. Burton already has an NIL valuation of $524,000 and looks to capitalize on the opportunity to play with a Heisman-winning quarterback in Bryce Young. Burton aims to become a two-time. national champion with the Tide in 2022.

Ga’Quincy (‘Kool-Aid’) McKinstry- $473,000

With the coolest name in sports and an easy-in for NIL deals, ‘Kool-Aid’ McKinstry has an NIL valuation of $473,000. Kool-Aid has NIL deals with- you guessed it- Kool-Aid, among others. McKinstry saw substantial playing time last season and looks to have an even bigger role moving into his sophomore season.

Another transfer portal find, Ricks joined the Alabama Football team from the LSU Tigers and looks to make an immediate impact in the secondary in the 2022 season. Ricks comes in with a $469,000 valuation, rounding out the Tide players in the top 100 highest valued college football players.
