Michigan State Running Back Uses NIL Perk to Care for Offensive Line Teammates
Michigan State University student-athlete Kenneth Walker III has made an NIL deal with TrueSleep Mattress. As part of the arrangement, Walker showed his appreciation for his offensive line by having them professionally fitted with new pillows, mattresses, and sheets. The gesture is meant to help the players rest and recover after practices and games.
A news release from TrueSleep states: “Walker started sleeping on a Posh+Lavish Reveal mattress with a 2″ latex mattress topper and BluSleep Pillows just 5 days before rushing for 232 yards and a touchdown against Big 10 foe Rutgers. The Posh+Lavish mattress is designed with Tally Latex to aid in recovery and encourage a deeper, more restful sleep. The support layers are designed to help keep his spine in alignment and reduce soreness. TrueSleep placed the mattress on a BedTech BT6500 adjustable base with functions including zero gravity, lumbar support and massage.”
Walker is a junior from Arlington, Tennessee. He’s been named to two different Midseason All-America teams.
