UCLA Men’s Basketball guard Jaylen Clark enters an endorsement NIL deal with Newegg Commerce, MSI Computer Corporation, and Seagate Technology.
Clark will be seen in the companies’ social media content using an MSI Katana 15 Gaming Laptop and backing up his data with a Seagate® Expansion external hard drive. In new posts, he appears in a Newegg jersey on a basketball court and carries Newegg boxes.
Clark is a 6-foot, 5-inch junior guard from Riverside, California. He’s has averaged 13.0 points, 6.0 rebounds, 1.9 assists, 2.6 steals and 0.3 blocks per game during the 2022-23 season.
Clark was named Pac-12 Defensive Player of the Year, UCLA’s first honoree for that award since 2008, and he was a second-team All-Pac-12 selection. Also, he is among 10 national semifinalists for the Naismith Men’s Defensive Player of the Year.
Away from basketball, Clark is a hard-working student who uses a laptop and hard drive for schoolwork. Like other students, during his limited free time, he plays video games.
Unlike most college basketball players, Clark has his own YouTube channel where he posts behind-the-scenes videos about himself and his life as a student-athlete. As his playing time increased, his video posting frequency decreased.
In a released statement from Newegg, Clark says, “If I’m not playing basketball or sleeping, I’m probably using some form of tech in the classroom, between classes and in my limited downtime. Taking notes in class and then studying them is easier with a laptop. Of course, I have to back up everything with a hard drive. As a communications major, I’ve documented a lot of the behind-the-scenes moments through my YouTube channel so people can get an idea of what a student-athlete’s life is like. I shoot the footage and then edit on a laptop. I can’t imagine a day without using tech now and in the future.”
