Cardale Jones is making an impact with the Buckeyes again; this time, though, it’s off the football field.

The Foundation, a non-profit NIL collective created by Jones and Brian Schottenstein, has facilitated a name, image and likeness deal for four OSU football players worth $550,000. This sum makes the new partnership the largest NIL deal for Ohio State since the NCAA began allowing them last year.

Defensive back Denzel Burke, running back TreVeyon Henderson, quarterback CJ Stroud and wide receiver Jaxon Smith-Nijgba have signed the deal.

The non-profit aims to leverage NIL deals for OSU student-athletes to “help promote worthy charitable causes and make positive contributions to our local communities,” according to the organization’s website.

The Foundation, which officially launched in late March, partners with local charities A Kid Again, Buckeye Cruise for Cancer and LifeTown.
