Nebraska pole vaulter Jess Gardner is making waves and becoming a social media star.
Gardner, who currently has 96,000 followers on Instagram, could potentially follow in the footsteps of LSU gymnast Olivia Dunne and crush it in NIL deals.
The junior pole vaulter competed in the Big Ten track and field championships last season and posted some solid scores.
