Oregon Ducks star Kayvon Thibodeaux announced on Tuesday that he has partnered with Nike co-founder Phil Knight and company designer Tinker Hatfield for online art available for purchase with regular money or cryptocurrency.

In an article on Twitter, Thibodeaux expressed his excitement and shared a snapshot of the Nike inspired portrait.:

The artwork is available on OpenSea and, at the time of this writing, sells for $ 103.76.

Nike has supplied Oregon with some of the most colorful, diverse and dazzling uniforms in college football for a number of years. The Ducks’ brand is strong beyond Eugene, Ore., In large part thanks to the team’s clothing and the success of the program.

Supporting such bold and boisterous discussions with stellar play on the pitch is important, and Oregon does this on a regular basis.

Thibodeaux is the latest highly prized player to have participated in the Ducks program. He should now take advantage of the NCAA’s decision to allow athletes to enjoy their name, image and likeness.

Several other top players sought out NIL opportunities, such as Oklahoma quarterback and Heisman Trophy contender Spencer Rattler and new Alabama starting QB Bryce Young.

After racking up 14 tackles for a loss and nine sacks in the freshman, Thibodeaux had 9.5 TFL and three more sacks in 2020 in just seven games. Rated at 6-5, 250 pounds, he’s considered one of the top prospects likely to make the 2022 NFL Draft.

A lot of earning potential is in Thibodeaux’s future, but it will be good for him to gain more financial security as he prepares for the pros.
