No, I believe it has to be "fair market value". Obviously there's a lot of wiggle room there, and people will figure it out, but you can't just hand them money.

Op's link even refers to that by talking about how much work it was to make sure it complied with the NIL rules.
This is still going to end with us being penalized for $300 in clothes and an aquarium trip, isn't it?

Market value doesn’t have anything to do with it. I’m pretty sure we can just ask for an autograph.
It's written into most of the rules that it has to be fair market value. Here is the relevant section from the Georgia law (emphasis mine):

(a) A student athlete at a postsecondary educational institution may earn compensation for the use of his or her name, image, or likeness. Such compensation must be commensurate with the market value of the authorized use of the student athlete's name, image, or likeness. Such compensation may not be provided in exchange, in whole or in part, for a current or prospective student athlete to attend, participate, or perform at a particular postsecondary educational institution.

Like I said, there's a lot of wiggle room there -- there's no single "fair market value" for an autograph, for example. But Phil Knight can't just tell a 'croot that he's willing to pay $1 million for the autographs of star Oregon players. He'll have to figure out something at least a little more clever.

"Certain positions, probably, enhance opportunities to create value, like quarterback, and our quarterback (Young) already has approached ungodly numbers — I'm not going to say what they are — and he hasn't even played yet. Hasn't even started," Saban said at the Texas High School Coaches Association's annual convention on Tuesday. "... It’s almost seven figures. And it's like, the guy hasn't even played yet. But that's because of our brand."

Nick Saban says Alabama QB Bryce Young has signed nearly $1M worth of endorsement deals already (yahoo.com)

Saban has fully embraced this recruiting enhancement.

This is the problem. It’s the legal version of buying kids cars. I believe Arch will go somewhere and have $10-15 million plus waiting on him

The interesting thing about Arch is he is his own brand so he should be worth this amount regardless where he goes *plus* he is already filthy rich so its not like he's needy anyway.

the Stingtalk Lawyers Association (SLA) should be able to pick that apart easily.

The money is to be had in social media influencing. If some of these players have over a million followers, having them post something is worth a lot of money at the “fair market rate”.
