NIL - Name, Images, Likeness payments to NCAA players - Effect on Pac-12?

I was shocked to hear about prepayments of well over a million dollars plus maybe a house to the former Pitt WR Addison to transfer to USC based on NIL. Guess my head has been in the sand. I figured they'd be getting paid after the fact by advertisers, media places, etc. Are the payments now straight from the schools?

Is U of O big on this? If it is going strong elsewhere and not here, the stars would not want to come play with us, you'd think.

Any info would help. I searched this website for NIL and name, images, likeness and didn't see anything pop up.

Hate to say 'It'll ruin the sport' for NCAA football but it sure could really change things.

Thanks in advance.
