South Orange, N.J. – Seton Hall Athletics has selected COMPASS to aid in student-athlete education and management of Name, Image and Likeness opportunities using a one-stop mobile friendly platform, Seton Hall Director of Athletics & Recreation Bryan Felt announced Monday.
“We are excited to partner with COMPASS to provide our student-athletes the information and tools they need to make sound and informed decisions related to name, image and likeness,” Felt said. “Student-athletes being able to profit off NIL like all of their non-athlete peers was long overdue, and now that the opportunity is there, we are ready to support the process by utilizing COMPASS and ensuring that our student-athletes are educated on best practices.
“Seton Hall has always attracted great student-athletes in part due to its location in the great state of New Jersey and its proximity to New York City and all that it has to offer. Now with NIL on board combined with our position in the largest media market in the world, we are excited to continue attracting student-athletes who will come to Seton Hall to maximize their classroom, competition and personal brand potential, and we’re excited to have COMPASS help facilitate it.”
Developed by CLC, the nation’s leading trademark licensing company, and Game Plan, the premier provider of athlete education, the COMPASS platform will provide proven systems to enable Seton Hall student-athletes and staff to begin preparing for NIL. This platform also offers flexibility to adapt to NIL guidelines or laws as they evolve over time, ensuring student-athletes never miss opportunities and remain compliant in their eligibility requirements.
“We are excited to partner with Seton Hall to provide our COMPASS integrated disclosure, monitoring, and education platform to help empower student-athlete success with NIL,” said Cory Moss, CEO of CLC. “Providing the robust tools and a solid foundation of education in legal and compliance issues will ensure Pirate student-athletes are prepared to maximize NIL opportunities while maintaining eligibility and learning life skills for beyond college.”
