Olivia Dunne leads the way as LSU dominates NIL valuation rankings for NCAA female athletes
LSU gymnast Olivia Dunne has developed a reputation over the last couple of years as one of the best NCAA athletes at generating money through name, image and likeness deals.
She now has plenty of company at LSU when it comes to NIL potential.
On3 updated its NIL Valuation Women's NIL Top 10 on Tuesday, and four LSU athletes made the cut.
Dunne leads the way at No. 1 and is well ahead of the rest of the field with an NIL valuation of $3.4 million.
LSU women's basketball star Angel Reese, whose stardom took off during the run to the NCAA title last month, ranks No. 2 at $1.4 million.
Flau'Jae Johnson, who had a breakout season as a true freshman for the women's basketball team, comes in at No. 4 with an NIL valuation of $801,000. She has also developed a name for herself away from the court, earning a recording contract with Jay-Z's Roc Nation label as a rapper.
The newest addition to the LSU women's basketball team, Louisville transfer Hailey Van Lith, also made the Top 10 at No. 8 with a valuation of $506,000.
Like the other LSU athletes on this list, Van Lith has a large following on social media. The native of Washington state has 771,000 followers on Instagram.
The On3 valuation is an estimation of what each athlete is worth on the NIL market.
