LANGSTON, Okla. – The Langston University Department of Athletics is pleased to announce they have partnered with Opendorse to launch the Langston Athletics Marketplace, the department’s official NIL (Name, Image, and Likeness) market for student-athletes.

“Most small college athletic administrators do not have the budget to create a NIL department or hire an additional person to handle student athlete NIL opportunities. Opendorse serves as my NIL department,” Langston University Director of Athletics Donnita Rogers said. “This NIL platform ensures that at a touch of a button, all Langston University student-athlete NIL disclosures, personal profile pages, and current contracts are available on our NIL dashboard. Our athletes will receive valuable training on personal branding, current NIL legislation as well as tax prep information.”
