TOO UNSURPRISE Both beautiful and talented Angel Reese has something unexpected in common with Livvy Dunne that has fans talking

Angel Reese has something new in common with Livvy Dunne

Dunne and Reese are some of the highest-earners in college sports

When Shaquille O’NealNBA icon and now the influential force behind Reebok, signed LSU basketball star Angel Reese to the brand, it marked a significant shift in the world of college sports sponsorships. With the recent surge in Name, Image, and Likeness (NIL) deals, college athletes, notably from LSU, are gaining prominence and financial success like never before.

Angel Reese, affectionately known as the “Bayou Barbie,” recently clinched a pivotal deal with ReebokShaq, the legendary basketball figure and now the president of basketball at Reebok, proudly welcomed Reese into the brand’s family, emphasizing her impact on the game. Last season, Reese showcased her dominance on the court, leading the Tigers to their first-ever NCAA basketball championship, setting an NCAA record with 34 double-doubles in the process.

The magnitude of Reese‘s impact on the sport and her connection to O’Neal (who once hailed Reese as the greatest athlete in LSU’s storied history) is undeniable. “For my first appointment in this role, it had to be the GOAT. There is no one making a bigger impact on the game right now than Angel Reese,” said O’Neal. As the new face of Reebok, Reese aims to inspire the younger generation with authenticity. She shared, “Together, I think we have a great opportunity to do things differently, to inspire people to explore and express themselves unapologetically.”

Dunne and Reese have taken the NIL world by storm

However, Reese isn’t the only LSU athlete garnering attention in this era of NIL prominence. Olivia Dunne, an LSU gymnast, stands tall as the top college earner of 2023. With an estimated net worth of over $3.5 million, Dunne’s achievements both in and out of the arena have positioned her as a force to be reckoned with in the NIL landscape. On3’s Sports Nil Valuation tool may rank her third in earnings, but her influence transcends mere rankings. Her recent feature on the cover of Sports Illustrated alongside Reese reflects the powerful tandem they form in representing LSU’s athletic brand.


In a world where the boundaries between sports, finance, and personal branding are becoming increasingly blurred, Dunne firmly asserts her worth. “People need to understand that I’ve worked for everything I’ve earned. I’ve spent years building an audience, and brands pay me for what they believe is worth the reach of the demographic that I offer,” she stated.

As the 2023-24 sports season looms, with the LSU Tigers’ basketball team commencing as the nation’s top team, and with stars like Reese and Dunne leading the charge, the era of NIL dominance promises to keep growing and growing.
