MSHSL approves NIL for students, allow early shot clock use
(ABC 6 News) —
The MSHSL board of directors met on Tuesday with a few major details coming out of that meeting.
The big news is the approval of NIL deals for student-athletes, which give high schoolers protection of their amateur status as well as the opportunity to monetize their likeness. Student-athletes will be compensated as long as its not via the school or dependent upon an individual performance among other stipulations. Students may be compensated for instructing or coaching and can promote products, provided logos or mascots aren’t part of the promotion.
Additionally, the board voted to allow the use of shot clocks for conference basketball games as early as this coming 2022-23 season. Conferences will need to be able to operate shot clocks themselves for this to happen, but clocks will be mandated by the 2023-24 school year.
