One of the fastest-rising QB prospects in the upcoming draft, Will Levis is headed to the NFL. Before he goes, let’s look back at his impact on the NIL endorsement market.
Will Levis is a name that’s been floating around NFL circles for the last two seasons. He was even talked about as a potential top prospect last year, so when he declared for the 2023 NFL Draft, it made sense that he appeared near the top of most mock draft boards.
Levis solidified his position as one of the top quarterback prospects in all of college football after improving his QB rating to 151.9. His passing yards and touchdowns were down from his 2022 campaign, but he also played in two fewer games. No matter the stats, NFL front offices have been enamored by Levis’s physical profile, standing at 6-3, 225 pounds.
Because of this, he’s due to make a decent chunk of change when he signs an NFL contract, adding to what he’s already made via NIL at Kentucky. So before he departs for the next level, Boardroom breaks down the complete Will Levis NIL earnings story at Kentucky.

Notable Will Levis NIL Deals
Alongside Alabama’s Bryce Young, Levis was one of five college football athletes that NOBULL signed to an NIL deal just days after becoming the official sponsor of the NFL Combine. Per the deal, prospects are required to wear NOBULL apparel during all on- and off-field activities, while retaining the choice of footwear for on-field activities.
According to On3.com, Mercury “creates exclusive digital-first platforms and communities for top collegiate brands to bring fans closer to their favorite athletes and teams.” In this partnership, Levis is featured on the company’s Blue Chips platform, making monthly appearances on the company’s Next Up video podcast.
Perhaps not a known entity outside of the state, the Kentucky-based Ale-8-One soda brand pegged Levis as an NIL partner quickly. The deal came to be through Kentucky’s collective, The 15 Club.
