If Master P. has his way, the first-ever million-dollar college athlete could reside at an HBCU.
The No Limit Records founder recently told TMZ Sports that he was in the process of negotiating a $2.5 million contract for his son, Hercy Miller, who committed to play basketball at Tennessee State.
“So, right now, I have a deal on the table for Hercy to make $2.5 million,” Master P said of his son. “He never even played a lick of [college] basketball.”
The proposed deal all hinges on a pending NCAA rule change that would allow college athletes to have autonomy over and profit from their likeness.

If approved, the rule would be set to take effect on Aug. 1.
“Guys that are going to the G League and to these other — they’re not even getting that type of money,” Master P said. “I think the game is going to change after Aug. 1, anyway.”
