Jalen Bridges Signs Pepperoni Roll NIL Deal, Featured in Hilarious Video



The NCAA passing the name, image and likeness bill on July 1 might’ve been the best thing to happen in the history of college sports. West Virginia forward Jalen Bridges backs that statement up with the latest NIL deal that he signed.

On Thursday afternoon, Bridges announced on his Instagram that he will be signing with Rogers and Mazza’s, one of the pepperoni roll companies.

The Fairmont, W.Va., native was featured in a commercial promoting the pepperoni rolls, which could possibly be the greatest video in the NIL era. The video includes Bridges eating a pepperoni roll, promoting Rogers and Mazza’s as the best pepperoni roll.

“Rogers and Mazza’s is my favorite pepperoni roll, I think I’ll have one more,” Bridges says in the commercial.

Bridges was then asked if he wanted one more.

“Sure, I always shoot for three,” Bridges responded.

Bridges through 10 games is averaging 7.4 points, 5.0 rebounds and 1.0 blocks per game. The 6-foot-7 forward is playing 25 minutes per game, shooting the ball at 47 percent in his sophomore season playing for West Virginia.
