QB D’Eriq King First NCAA Athlete Accepts Sponsorship… And He’s a HUNK

College HUNKS Hauling Junk and Moving®, an industry leader in stress-free solutions for moving and junk-hauling needs, recently signed an endorsement deal with University of Miami Quarterback D’Eriq King. The agreement, co-sponsored by Murphy’s Auto Group, comes hot off the heels of the NCAA approving a policy that allows college athletes to profit from their names, images, and likeness. College HUNKS and King finalized their deal right at the launch of the policy going into effect on July 1, 2021. Safety Bubba Bolden also signed his deal with College HUNKS following King’s announcement.

“As a former UM Hurricane, this is such an honor for our organization to be able to support my alma mater and athletes who work so hard at their sports,” said Omar Soliman, Co-founder of College HUNKS. “Our brand is committed to building and supporting leaders. Through our partnership with King, we hope that we can help further his growth as he heads his football team, while also navigating school and life.”

“College HUNKS is an organization that cares for its people, offers them incredible support, and backs it all with solid values, which makes them an attractive endorsement partner,” said King, Quarterback for the University of Miami. “I’m looking forward to working with them and aligning myself with this first-in-class brand.”

Former player Ahmmon Richards made the intro to King and Bolden. Ahmmon is the Chairmen of sports agency LGNDARY Sports and will soon be opening the first College HUNKS franchise in Miami.

“This is truly an exciting time for college sports, and we are delighted that College HUNKS is showing their support for this historic movement by teaming up with King. As a former collegiate athlete, I understand and appreciate the importance of this new policy passed by the NCAA and applaud them as they open more opportunities for young athletes,” said Richards.

“King is joining us at such a momentous time for college sports and for our business. We are thrilled to welcome him to our team and have him represent our brand,” said Nick Friedman, Co-Founder and Visionary of College HUNKS. “
