Texas’ Quinn Ewers signs NIL deal to market his likeness digitally

Texas quarterback Quinn Ewers, a redshirt freshman who has played just five quarters this season, has inked an NIL deal with a firm marketing digital collectibles. Ewers has been out with a clavicle injury since the Alabama game on Sept. 10.
  • Texas quarterback Quinn Ewers has signed a multi-year deal allowing Metabilia to market his likeness digitally.
  • Metabilia CEO Joe De Perio declined to say how much Ewers could make from this NIL deal, but the firm has gotten a six-figure commitment from a Longhorn booster group of donors.
  • Metabilia also has deals with more than 30 elite professional athletes like Buffalo quarterback Josh Allen and Rams defensive end Aaron Donald.

In his latest NIL deal, Texas quarterback Quinn Ewers has partnered with a relatively new technology company called Metabilia for an undisclosed amount to market virtual collectibles about his current and future career.

The three-year-old company will announce Thursday an introductory plan where donors, fans, boosters and investors can sign up for a Member Pass for $30 and purchase items called NFTs that commemorate Ewers’ athletic accomplishments. Those who buy Member Passes in this initial offering can buy digital collectibles for a single dollar and eventually use the platform for exclusive access to purchase or trade for actual physical, Ewers-autographed memorabilia like posters, pictures or even some game-used items like his cleats.

An NFT is a non-fungible token that’s a piece of digital data stored on a blockchain, making it verifiable with an online record of business transactions.
