Beats By Dre was Williams’ first announced partnership after enrolling at USC. The brand announced the pairing on Feb. 4. Since transferring from Oklahoma to Southern Cal, Williams has inked NIL deals with partners like Fanatics, a grooming brand called Faculty, and a Beverly Hills-based real estate private equity fund, among others.
Kartje also wrote that Williams intends to make a habit out of sharing the wealth with his USC teammates when it comes to NIL earnings.
