It’s no secret that incoming South Carolina freshman Nyckoles Harbor is a tantalizing prospect and someone who was made to make his presence felt in the NIL space.

Well, Harbor just teamed up with the German-based fashion label Hugo Boss on a new NIL deal. He announced the new partnership on his Instagram account last week.

“Thankful to partner with such an iconic brand for my special day!” Harbor wrote on Instagram. “Are you ready to play like a Boss?”

He partnered with Hugo Boss just in time for his senior prom. Harbor snapped and shared pictures of his big day on Instagram.

Harbor already has a lucrative NIL deal with Champs Sports, and he will undoubtedly see more NIL deals once he enrolls at South Carolina.

Harbor, a five-star tight end, wide receiver and defensive end from Washington D.C., chose the Gamecocks after a contested and competitive recruiting battle. He chose the Gamecocks over the likes of Maryland, Oregon, Michigan and Alabama.

Since Washington D.C. allows high school student-athletes to profit off their name, image and likeness, it has allowed Harbor to profit from NIL.

Expect more NIL collectives and companies to reach out once Harbor officially enrolls.

One such collective would be the South Carolina-focused NIL collective Garnet Trust.

“We had zero (recruitment) of him or anyone in his family,” Garnet Trust Director of Operations Jeremy Smith told The NIL Deal back in February. “Until he is on campus, we obviously can’t put anything into a contract. I don’t know (for certain), but from what I’ve been told, he turned down some more lucrative NIL deals that we could ever put forth to get him to (sign) with South Carolina.”

South Carolina, which finished 8-5 overall and 4-4 in the SEC, will open up its season on Sept. 2 against North Carolina at home.
