Tuscaloosa, Ala. (WIAT) — It’s arguably the most fitting deal inked by a college athlete since the NIL law took effect on July 1.

Ga’Quincy McKinstry, whose nickname is Kool-Aid’, has signed a deal with the popular drinking company of the same name.

McKinstry is even known by Kool-Aid on the University of Alabama football rooster. He is a freshman defensive back from the Birmingham area. He went to Pinson Valley High School.

There’s no word yet on what this partnership will mean. But McKinstry and Kool-Aid had fun announcing the news on Twitter by swapping accounts.
