Personal Injury Attorney Signs NIL Deal with Class of 2023 Women’s Basketball Recruit
Louisiana personal injury attorney Gordon McKernan has signed a Name, Image, & Likeness (NIL) deal with Mikaylah Williams, the nation’s No. 1 recruit in the Class of 2023 for women’s college basketball.
Williams verbally committed to Coach Kim Mulkey of the Louisiana State University’s Lady Tigers Basketball team earlier this year.
When asked about his decision to offer an NIL deal to a high school recruit, McKernan said, “I’d be a fool to not sign MK. In addition to her unmatched skill on the court, her character is nothing short of admirable. Her zest for life, hunger for growth, and love for family spoke to me.”
In 2022, Williams won a gold medal with Team USA in the FIBA 3×3 U18 World Cup FIBA 3×3 World Cup, where she was also named MVP. Additionally, she was named one of twelve players on the 2022 USA Basketball Women’s U17 National Team, who took home a gold medal after completing in the FIBA U17 World Cup in Hungary this summer.
