The NIL world continues to treat the Wildcats well, and I think it's safe to say, this is just the beginning.
The SEC leader in receiving yards, and arguably the most popular man in the state of Kentucky currently has signed his second NIL endorsement, and the largest deal of any Kentucky athlete to date, believed to be six-figures plus worth, by partnering up with Stockton Mortgage.
“Stockton Mortgage and Wan’Dale Robinson both come from humble beginnings in Frankfort - making this such a strong partnership. He’s a hard-working and determined young man who shares his success with what he values most: his family. And not just his own but with families across the bluegrass, as evident from his work with the Wanda Joyce Robinson Foundation. That is what resonates most with us at Stockton. Being family-owned and operated, we all start each day with the goal of helping families find their way home, by connecting them to resources that make homeownership more affordable. We admire his work for Kentucky communities, are proud and supportive of his career and we are excited to see his achievements on and off the field. ”
Stockton Mortgage is a Frankfort, Ky, based company and Wan'Dale Robinson is also a Frankfort native. It only seems right the two connected once players were allowed to start profiting off their name, image and likeness.
During the partnership, he will be used for a variety of different things, such as commercials, radio ads, and even become the official spokesperson for SM.
Wan'Dale announced this offseason that a portion of all of his proceeds from endorsements will go to the Wanda Joyce Robinson Foundation, which supports children with incarcerated parents.
The first NIL endorsement coming for the wide-receiver was with Paul Miller Ford of Lexington, becoming the first and only automobile partnership of any Kentucky Wildcat athlete to date. Robinson also has his own apparel line at Wandale1.com
