Georgia QB Jaden Rashada has sued Florida coach Billy Napier, top Gators booster Hugh Hathcock and former football staffer Marcus Castro-Walker over a failed name, image and likeness deal that would have paid him $13.85 million, according to a lawsuit filed in federal court on Tuesday...
quote:

The bombshell lawsuit, which features the unprecedented action of an active SEC quarterback suing a sitting rival head coach, is the most notable NIL-related lawsuit to date. In many ways, Rashada became the face of the chaotic nature of early NIL that was full of big promises with little oversight on the heels of his Florida deal falling apart.

The complaint, filed in the Pensacola Division of the U.S. District Court for the Northern District of Florida, details a number of counts alleging Napier, Hathcock and others fraudulently induced Rashada, then a highly regarded high school quarterback prospect, to attend Florida with no intention of following through on their financial promises. Specifically, the lawsuit claims fraudulent misrepresentation and inducement, aiding and abetting fraud, civil conspiracy to commit fraud, negligent misrepresentation, tortious interference with a business relationship or contract and aiding and abetting tortious interference.

"Hathcock (on behalf of himself and Velocity Automotive), Castro-Walker and Coach Napier orchestrated and executed a fraud upon Jaden and were substantially and knowingly assisted by one another in carrying out the fraud," the lawsuit says. "Each of their individual schemes would not have succeeded without assistance from one another."

Yes! And NIL pay for play will die. Donors with deep pockets will not put their pockets at risk for some kid.

You guys are going to find out that Florida is at fault. The disagreement started immediately when they didn't pay agreed upon 1st payment

All the UGA collective has to do is spell out what they are actually going to do for him.

I know the collective CEO and he is steering an ethical ship.

SCOTUS, made up of lawyers, opened the spigot named Incredible Lawsuits for Lawyers with the NIL ruling.
I heard a 3rd grader telling his basketball coach recently to talk to his lawyer when asked to take part in the team picture.

Just turn college football into a full paid minor league with a salary cap. Level the playing field again. Players get paid by position and experience. Any NIL stuff is done completely on their own and outside of the school.

Was any of this on paper and signed by the respective parties? If not, too bad. Also, I thought the school (head coach) could not be party to NIL deals.

Just dragging everyone through the mud... Lawyers attach everyone remotely involved to create headlines in hopes of a quick settlement.

You'd think that the amounts are in writing here most likely.
