Video: Jaydon Mickens on potential impact of NCAA antitrust ruling

[do action=”brightcove-video” videoid=”3723155526001″/]

Washington receiver Jaydon Mickens met with the media after Saturday’s practice and talked in general about the potential fallout after a U.S. District Court judge ruled against the NCAA while striking down regulations that barred players from receiving compensation from schools for the use of their names, images and likenesses.

The NCAA is likely to appeal, but as it stands the ruling would allow football and Division I basketball players to potentially receive as much as $20,000 when they leave school. The ruling is not scheduled to take affect until July 2016.

It’s a complicated case, but for Mickens it’s somewhat simple. For years, he’s been a fan of video games featuring college players and he’d be happy to see himself in those games with or without receiving payment.

“We’re not worried about money and all of that,” Mickens said. “We’re just appreciative and thankful for at least being on the video game. A lot of people can’t say their on a video game that people buy in stores worldwide.”
