LSU Tigers star quarterback Jayden Daniels makes headlines after signing an NIL deal ahead of the 2023 season.

Reports indicate he signed a contract with popular fast food chain Raising Cane’s, upping his NIL valuation by a considerable amount.

Daniels made the announcement on Instagram, writing, “Nothing I like better than touchdowns and chicken fingers.”

This is a big deal for Jayden Daniels, as he joins LSU stars Angel Reese and Flau’jae Johnson in signing a contract with Raising Cane’s, per On3.

Considering the restaurant chain is based in Baton Rouge, it only makes sense for them to sign Louisiana based players to NIL deals.

With that said, Jayden Daniels received a big bump in his NIL valuation after inking this contract.

According to On3, the LSU quarterback “holds a $566,000 On3 NIL Valuation, which sits at No. 78 in the college football NIL rankings. His valuation is No. 78 in the NIL 100, which is the first of its kind and defacto NIL ranking of the top 100 high school and college athletes ranked by their On3 NIL Valuation.”

Jayden Daniels is certainly a rising star in the college football world. He’s the starting quarterback of the LSU Tigers, who are currently ranked sixth in the preseason rankings, per

Expectations are high, as the the former Arizona State transfer aims to lead the Tigers to a National Championship.

If he can do that, Daniels’ stock will likely rise, making him an intriguing prospect in what is supposed to be a loaded quarterback class in the 2024 NFL Draft.

With that said, look for Jayden Daniels to make plenty of noise for LSU this year, as he’s already being viewed as one of the better quarterbacks this year.
