Alabama Wide Receiver Slade Bolden Announces NIL Agreement With Clothing Store
The NCAA recently allowed its college athletes to take advantage of their name image and likeness by partnering with companies and brands to market their brands. We have already seen several Alabama athletes announce partnerships with brands and companies.
Alabama redshirt junior wide receiver Slade Bolden announced on his Instagram a partnership with, premier luxury-clothing store Christopher Mobley.
Christopher Mobley is a clothing store on University Boulevard that opened in 2019 with apparel designed for the modern-day entrepreneur, golf enthusiast, and athleisure fanatic.
Christopher Mobley Sr. opened The Varsity Store in 1971 in Tuscaloosa and then moved and rebranded the store as Mobley & Sons to the Tuscaloosa Galleria in 1985.
Christopher Mobley offers men's and women's apparel and offers gameday gear for Alabama, Georgia, Kentucky, LSU, Ole Miss and Texas fans.
Bolden has seen his role increase year by year in the Alabama offense. The wide receiver stepped into more responsibility last season after Jaylen Waddle went down with an injury.
The West Monroe, LA. native has hauled in 26 receptions for 304 yards and one receiving touchdown while also taking five carries for 11 yards on the ground. Bolden's versatility has been on display as he's also returned seven punts for 49 yards, he's thrown one 6-yard pass for a touchdown and tallied five special teams tackles.
He is expected to assume one of the starting wide receiver roles along with John Metchie III in 2021. His versatility and experience will be valuable for the Tide this season as the Bama offense welcomes a new starting quarterback.
