RICHMOND, Va. – HAVOC Unlimited Collective is set to launch to support Virginia Commonwealth University (VCU) student-athletes’ name, image and likeness (NIL) revenue opportunities. The collective will roll out its support of VCU student-athletes of all sports in a phased approach, beginning with basketball. HAVOC Unlimited Collective seeks to be the nation’s leading supporter-funded NIL facilitation platform and aims to position student-athletes for sustained success in the NIL arena.
Why have a collective?
In order to enhance the student-athlete experience and for VCU Athletics to remain competitive on the court and fields of play, we need to compete and win in the NIL arena. HAVOC Unlimited Collective will help student-athletes capitalize on and monetize their NIL, while providing opportunities for all of Ram Nation and the community to contribute and engage with the student-athletes they passionately support.
Student-athletes will profit off of their name, image and likeness by participating in activities that include, but are not limited to, community service, public appearances, marketing campaigns and events, as well as social and digital media opportunities.
Alumnus Rodney Ashby will lead the collective, along with a Board of Directors comprised of business leaders and former student-athletes associated with VCU. A former men’s basketball student-athlete for the Rams and 1994 VCU graduate, Ashby currently serves as color analyst for men’s basketball broadcasts on the Rams Unlimited Network.
“We are excited to partner with VCU’s loyal supporters, local businesses, alumni and fans to provide a resource that will offer an avenue for Ram Nation to confidently support and connect with VCU student-athletes, while enhancing the student-athlete experience at VCU,” Ashby said.
HAVOC Unlimited Collective is not affiliated with the University. However, it will work with the VCU Athletic department’s internal NIL staff and administration to maintain compliance with NCAA guidelines and, above all, ensure all parties are acting in the best interests of VCU’s student-athletes.
