“At The College, we seek to empower our student-athletes to realize their potential on and off the playing surface, and it’s vital that we provide them with the necessary tools to do so,” Roberts said. “Our partnership with INFLCR will help give our student-athletes an edge as they navigate the waters of NIL and capitalize on the value of their own brands. We’re fortunate to be in a world-renowned city at a world-class institution with an already highly recognized brand, and we’re excited to utilize INFCLR to amplify The Charleston Edge and assist our programs in this new chapter of college sports.”
