Say what you want about Master P, but he knows how to get to the bag.
The No Limit mogul has negotiated million-dollar deals for his sons Hercy Miller and Mercy Miller before they enter college.
We have a lot of deals on the table, not only for Hercy, but for son, Mercy.
In August, the league is changing, the NCAA. You’ll be able to make money off your likeness, you’ll be able to do marketing deals.
So, right now I have a deal on the table for Hercy for $2.5 million. He never even played a lick of college basketball.
Master P says he also has a $1 million deal on the table for his 15-year-old son, Mercy Miller.
Both deals are on the table but they have not been signed yet because the NCAA rule change to allow amateur athletes to make money through endorsement is not projected to be finalized until August.
Hercy Miller chose to go to HBCU Tennessee State despite being heavily recruited by UCLA and other division 1 NCAA basketball programs.
Master P believes Hercy’s decision to play at an HBCU may motivate other young athletes to do the same.
The game is changing.
I feel like now, a lot of high school kids are gonna start saying, ‘I wanna go somewhere and make history, be a part of the moment and make a difference and also get to the league.'”
I think the spotlight from what Hercy’s done is really gonna be on HBCU’s and anybody that’s watching this that has a kid, don’t be afraid to send your kid to a HBCU.
