STILLWATER – Oklahoma State University Athletics Assistant Athletic Director for coordination of NIL Barry Hinson told Pokes Report on Thursday morning (Feb. 22) that Oklahoma State will be involved in EA Sports College Football 25 game that is due for release this summer (July). The company sent out contracts for the majority of scholarship college football players in the sport.

Players from all 134 Football Bowl Subdivision teams can opt in to be a part of EA Sports College Football 25 beginning Thursday, officially setting the athletes up to be compensated for being in the video game for the first time.

“We (Oklahoma State) are going to be involved in the game,” Hinson said. “EA Sports is just allotting for the 85 scholarship players, so it doesn’t include the walk-ons in the program. Our guys really came onboard with this when they did their Nike jerseys deal.”

EA Sports announced Thursday morning that all 134 FBS teams will be in the game, including soon-to-be FBS member Kennesaw State. OneTeam Partners will handle the players’ group licensing for the game and is also set to announce Thursday that players will be able to opt in through Learfield’s COMPASS NIL app.

Doak Walker Award winner Ollie Gordon II could be an EA Sports ambassador.

The players that opt in will receive $600.00 with the basic agreement and will receive a copy of the game that will be available in the various formats, a $70 retail value. Players who do not opt in will be represented with a generic player avatar. With more than 11,000 players expected to be in the game, this is believed to be the largest group NIL partnership of its kind.

EA Sports will also pay out additional NIL rewards to the ambassadors that they will employ for the game. Those players will come from a pool of top players in the sport and at Oklahoma State could include the likes of running back Ollie Gordon II, receiver Brennan Presley, and linebackers Collin Oliver and Nick Martin.
