Can you smell what Keshaun Moore is cooking? Again, the HBCU community is winning, with Moore signing the HBCU’s first WWE NIL program. He is making Hampton University and the entire HBCU community proud.
Moore’s talents have translated on and off the field. A recent graduate with a B.A. in Liberal Studies, he has been named to the Dean’s List and Honor Society. On the field, he earned Big South All-Conference honors for the past football season. Moore will continue to be the engine for the Hampton defense and show out in the CAA Conference.
Keshaun’s aspiration to add a Business Marketing degree to his resume fits right in with what the WWE’s NIL is offering. Moore is getting the opportunity to play the game he loves while starting his life after football. Keshaun is 1 of 15 college athletes to sign with the WWE’s NIL program.
The WWE’s NIL program launched in December focused on recruiting and developing potential future Superstars. Also, the program will help expand the WWE’s talent development process through collaborative partnerships with different college athletes with different athletic backgrounds. Athletes’ associations will have a wide variety of resources, including brand building, media training, communication, live event promotion, creative writing, and community relations.
After completing the NIL program, some athletes may be offered a WWE contract. Hopefully, Moore will be one of those to gain that exclusive opportunity and have an excellent first job after college football.
