“I am honored to join The Athlete’s Foot as their brand ambassador for 2024,” Johnson said in a statement. “It’s a platform where I can share my story, connect with others pursuing their dreams and combine my worlds of basketball and music.”

Johnson’s NIL portfolio includes deals with companies such as Meta, Puma, Powerade, JBL Audio and Amazon, On3 said.

Johnson, a sophomore, has emerged as one of college basketball’s top young prospects. She was the Southeastern Conference (SEC) Freshman of the Year during the 2022-2023 season, and her Tigers won the 2023 NCAA Championship.

Johnson, who is also a rapper and is known for promoting her music during press conferences, was an All-SEC Second Team honoree this season after averaging just under 15 points per game on 50% shooting from the field. Her LSU Tigers were eliminated from the women’s NCAA tournament Monday night after a loss to Iowa in the Elite Eight, a highly anticipated rematch of last year’s national championship.
