Cade Stover from Ohio State University has a deep passion for agriculture and would be delighted if his NIL compensations could be given in the form of farming equipment.
The landscape of college sports has significantly shifted in the past couple of years, with athletes being able to monetize their names, images, and likenesses (NIL). This new development has enabled players to earn income, an occurrence that is completely within the bounds of acceptability.
Yet, tight end Cade Stover presents a distinct perspective regarding his preferred mode of payment.
Electronic transfer? A stack of cash concealed in a takeout bag? Cryptocurrency?
None of these.
During Big Ten Media Days, Cade Stover shared with the press his unconventional payment preference - tractors. Indeed, the seasoned tight end doesn't require any paper checks.
Simply deliver a robust tractor to his residence, pass him the keys, and consider the payment fulfilled.
Reporter: How much would you estimate you’ve made in NIL?

It may not come as a surprise that Cade Stover opts for tractors as his form of payment. Firstly, tractors carry a high price tag, making them a valuable asset.
Secondly, he would have an immediate application for them as he hails from a farming family. Stover's family in Ohio operates a farm that yields cattle, corn, alfalfa, and they even run two butcher shops, as per a report by The Lantern.
This represents a substantial agricultural venture. Would a fashionable necklace or a car obtained through an NIL deal be of any assistance to the farm?
Certainly not. What he truly needs are combine harvesters and other large-scale tractors.

Most college students would be interested in cash. Not Cade. Get him some tractors so his farm can thrive and he's good to go.
