Bumper Pool has landed a Name, Image and Likeness deal with a prestigious financial firm, raising his profile even further among Arkansas Football fans.

The fifth-year senior is returning for one more season with the Razorbacks and will be making some money along the way.

It’s probably not Bryce Young-level money, but Pool is probably getting compensated very nicely in his new NIL deal.

Pool has partnered up with an Insurance firm that claims to be “one of the largest privately owned insurance brokerages in the Mid-South,” according to their website.

It’s not immediately clear how Stephens will be using Pool’s name or likeness, but it could feature anything from billboards to television spots to social media posts.

The Lucas, Texas native finished third among all SEC players in total tackles this past season with 125. He has been a phenomenal anchor in Barry Odom’s defense and the Hogs are lucky to have him back for one more season.

Here’s what Stephens Insurance and Pool had to say about the deal, according to a press release.

To have a partner like Stephens Insurance on my side just adds to the excitement I have going into the 2022 season.”
