He is making six figures in name, image, and likeness deals, but Bryce Young’s endorsements are not harming this year’s Alabama team.

According to ESPN’s Alex Scarbrough, the sophomore quarterback has signed deals worth more than $800,000 and has been presented offers over $1 million. Despite the chaos it created at SEC Football Media Days, Young and his teammates are more focused on this season. The California native is prepared to be the fifth first-year starting quarterback to lead the Crimson Tide to a national championship. He played in nine games last year; however, the A-Day Game showed fans Young’s true potential.

We are in a new era in college football, but the former five-star has the maturity to handle it.

Javion Cohen, a sophomore, came in the 2020 signing class with Young. He will more than likely start at left guard, and he praised the work ethic of his signal-caller on Twitter. Regardless of NIL, the offensive lineman called Young “special.”

Alabama’s locker room is ready for fall camp and the start of this season.

Young is expected to keep the Tide ahead of everyone else, and he is set to roll.
