The cover of the magazine showcases Olivia Dunne and Angel Reese, two collegiate sports icons who have become some of the most financially successful athletes in the nation due to their endorsement contracts through NIL opportunities. The magazine has featured them for the second time.

Two well-known LSU athletes who have signed contracts to use their names, images, and likenesses to endorse products and services in college sports have gotten noticed by a famous magazine. “The October edition is titled ‘The Money Issue’ magazine.”

According to the On3 NIL 100 list, both female individuals have inked agreements exceeding $1.5 million in value. The NCAA tournament victory brought Angel Reese‘s a revenue of $1.7 million, while Olivia Dunne currently possesses a fortune valued at $3.2 million.

Olivia Dunne’s ‘Livvy Fund’ continues to influence women athletes

Olivia Dunne, a gymnastics sensation, is rapidly rising in fame and boasts approximately 8 million TikTok followers. In the popularity ranking, he is currently placed third, with only Bronny James and Shedeur Sanders being more popular than him. Reese rose to fame after she played a crucial role in securing the LSU women’s basketball team’s inaugural national championship victory.

Out of all the players on the team, she held the position of eighth in terms of rank. Due to her popularity among her university friends, it would be wise for her to consider signing up for online courses. This year’s Sports Illustrated Swimsuit magazine showcased both women.

With their popularity at its peak, Olivia Dunne and Reese are wholeheartedly dedicating themselves to seizing every potential opportunity for profit, as they understand that this may be the most favorable time for such endeavors. The fact that the WNBA does not generate significant financial returns is widely recognized by numerous individuals. “Before entering the WNBA, my primary goal was to enhance my reputation and popularity during my college years,” Reese explained to SI.

Additionally, she has been in charge of the renovation projects for the women’s basketball offices and locker rooms, with a price tag reaching multimillion dollars. The Livvy Fund was established by Dunne, leveraging her popularity. This fund helps connect female athletes at LSU with different brands.

She wants her impact to be that future female athletes have financial security. “After college, there aren’t many well-paying professional sports leagues for women,” Dunne told SI. Therefore, it’s crucial for women to seize this chance while they’re still in college.”
