The college athletics world has had an interesting offseason. Now that players can make money on their name, image and likeness, top players around the country – including former Gilbert Tigers Haley and Hanna Cavinder – have added endorsement deals for the first time.
ASU quarterback Jayden Daniels is one of those athletes.
Daniels and Venezia’s Pizzeria have partnered to create the “JD5” pizza, which has pepperoni, crumbled sausage, bacon, mushroom and extra cheese.

The Sports360AZ team caught up with Daniels, ASU defensive back Chase Lucas and Sun Devil head coach Herm Edwards at Pac-12 Media Day to discuss the new NLI landscape, the JD5 and what their customized pies would be if they had control of the menu.
