The LSU Tigers women’s team is still on cloud nine since defeating Caitlin Clark and the Iowa Hawkeyes.
Although, nobody on the team might be happier than Angel Reese, who has reached new heights in fame and money since winning the title.
So much so, that it appears Reese is in the running for being the highest-paid athlete in women’s college basketball thanks to NIL deals.
According to On3, Angel Reese has a NIL valuation of $1.3 million. On top of that, the LSU star has earned over 2 million followers on social media. She’s now the highest projected earner in women’s college basketball.

Women’s sports have really taken off this year. The women’s bracket for the NCAA Tournament smashed viewing records of all sorts.
Angel Reese has been a star athlete throughout her collegiate career so far. With that said, it’s likely she continues developing her game until she eventually goes pro.
She even got incredibly high praise from Shaq, after he boldly claimed she’s the best athlete to ever play for LSU.
The world is officially changing and Reese’s NIL deals prove it.
She got plenty of flack for taunting Caitlin Clark at the end of the National Championship game. However, the spotlight has been shining on her since then.
Women’s sports are going to continue to grow and it’s cool to see some of these college athletes get a piece of the pie the men have been getting since NIL deals came to fruition.
