Front Office Sports reports LSU women athletes are among the highest paid when it comes to Name Image & Likeness dollars via On3.
Gymnast Olivia Dunne$3.4M
(who ranks 2nd overall of any athlete in the NCAA),
Basketball player Angel Reese, $1.4M
Basketball player Flau’jae Johnson, $812K
Basketball player Hailey Van Lith, $506K
For comparison sake, the highest salary in the WNBA is Jackie Young on the Las Vegas Aces at $252,450. The average salary in the WNBA is $147,745.
Meanwhile, Angel Reese heading into her senior rear for the LSU Tigers next season will reportedly be making $1.4 million. And she can come back for a 5th season due to the additional COVID year.
So even if Reese becomes the highest paid player in the WNBA, it would take her more than 7 seasons to match what she could make in her last two years at LSU. And that doesn't include what she has already made.
