Texas A&M-Commerce Athletic Director Tim McMurray says the Name, Image and Likeness (NIL) rules recently passed by the NCAA will allow A&M-Commerce and other Lone Star Conference and Division 2 athletes to make money on their social-media accounts that sometimes have nothing to do with athletics. He says that Texas universities have agreed to "guardrails" that will place the athletic programs on an even footing.
