When the name, image, and likeness came into effect, many Hawkeye fans knew fifth-year senior wrestler Spencer Lee was on the verge of winning big. Lee, who has won three national championships at 125 pounds, has already signed as an athlete with Barstool Sports and signed another agreement with MGC Sports a few weeks ago.
Now Lee is taking a new step in cashing out. On Monday, it was announced that Lee has officially launched his own clothing brand. You can consult it by clicking here.

Last season, Lee beat Arizona State’s Brandon Courtney 7-0 to secure his third national title. After the match, Lee revealed he struggles with zero healthy ACLs.
“Eight days ago I tore my ACL in my other knee, so I am wrestling without an ACL”, Lee said during his post-game interview with ESPN. “Whatever, man. I didn’t want to tell anyone, because excuses are for wimps.”
“It was a tough tournament for me. I could barely wrestle. I could barely shoot. I can’t stretch… but there was no doubt. My teammates said to me, ‘No one can. do that apart from you, “and I believed them.”
Here’s a more in-depth look at some of the implications of NIL.
“This is an important day for college athletes as they are now all able to take advantage of the opportunities of name, image and likeness,” said NCAA President Mark Emmert. “With the variety of state laws passed across the country, we will continue to work with Congress to develop a solution that will bring clarity at the national level. The current environment – both legal and legislative – prevents us from delivering a more permanent solution and the level of detail that student-athletes deserve.
“The policy provides the following advice to varsity athletes, rookies, their families and member schools:
- Individuals can engage in NIL activities that comply with the law of the state where the school is located. Colleges and universities are responsible for determining whether these activities comply with state law.
- College athletes who attend a school in a state without an NIL law can engage in this type of activity without breaking NCAA name, image, and likeness rules.
- Individuals can use a professional service provider for NIL activities.
- Student-athletes should report to their school NIL activities that comply with state law or school and conference requirements.
