Master P’s son, Hercy Miller, signed a $2 million groundbreaking endorsement deal shortly after the NCAA changed its rules regarding college athletes earning compensation for their talents.
“It’s incredible,” Master P told TMZ Sports. “This is going to change the way college athletes want to stay in school,” the celebrity dad shared. “This is a 4-year deal. I’m proud of my son for going to an HBCU. This is like playing in the pros now.”
The NCAA previously had regulations that prohibited college athletes from receiving compensation for their abilities on the court and field. The association recently moved to relax those rules, which was a change from which Hercy immediately benefited.
“I signed a deal with an American app technology company,” Hercy told TMZ Sports. “So, like my dad said, it’s a blessing,” the young athlete said. “I signed a deal with Athlete Wallet with Donald Hogan and Jabari Morgan. Like I said, it’s a blessing.”
Hercy Miller graduated from high school a few weeks ago. The youngster, who received several scholarship offers because of his academic excellence and ability to play basketball well, committed to attend HBCU Tennessee State University (TSU) in the fall.
“He works so hard,” Master P shared with TMZ Sports. “They say when you do right, blessings will keep coming to you. He’s been doing right,” the celebrity father shared. “He’s an ‘A’ student, and that’s why this company did this because they wanted to deal with a student-athlete from an HBCU. When they researched him, he was a top athlete when you pull up HBCUs. So this is incredible.”
Hercy’s deal is quite monumental. The young adult is not making plans, however, to spend frivolously. “I’m going to start off by giving back to the community,” Hercy shared when asked how he will spend his money. “I’m giving back to the kids. I’m giving out school supplies,” the young adult shared. “One thing I’m going to buy [for myself]. I’m going to get me something. I’m going to get a car.”
