Bryce Young: Fansville’s Newest Neighbor
Alabama quarterback and reigning Heisman Trophy winner Bryce Young inked his latest NIL deal this week, joining forces with Dr. Pepper to be the face of this year's "Fansville" ad campaign.
Young will be featured in several commercials for the brand this college football season as it looks to continue the story of its ever popular series.
After recently signing another deal with NFL Combine sponsor NOBULL as well, the Bama signal caller now has an estimated NIL evaluation of over $3.2 million, per On3. He ranks first among collegiate athletes.
A five-star prospect in 2020, Young joined the Tide with very high expectations, and after sitting for a season behind veteran Mac Jones, met them in 2021. The California native threw for nearly 5,000 yards and 47 touchdowns, winning the first ever Heisman Trophy for a Crimson Tide quarterback.
Though Alabama came up short in the national title game, Young was absolutely sensational throughout the year and should continue to build on it heading into year two as a starter.
Alabama's season kicks off on September 4 against Utah State at Bryant-Denny Stadium as the Tide look to make an early statement and set the tone for the rest of the year.
For Young, his individual goals have been reached, so just one more remains: a National Championship.
