Colorado’s Shilo Sanders’ Bankruptcy Saga, Unmasking the Hidden Side of NIL Earnings

Colorado safety Shilo Sanders has found himself in a legal quagmire, with a bankruptcy filing that aims to absolve an $11.89 million judgment tied to an alleged assault during his high school days. The case raises questions not only about Sanders’ financial history but also about his Name, Image, and Likeness (NIL) earnings.

In December 2023, Shilo Sanders filed for bankruptcy, seeking relief from the massive judgment against him. The lawsuit stems from an incident in 2015 when Sanders was in high school. A security guard, John Darjean, alleged that Sanders assaulted him, resulting in severe and permanent injuries.

The bankruptcy proceedings have shed light on Sanders’ financial situation. His declared assets amount to $320,477.10, including a Robinhood account, a Wells Fargo account, and a Mercedes GLE AMG 635 valued at $75,000. Notably absent from the filing are any NIL earnings, despite Sanders’ prominence as a college athlete. His NIL deals, primarily brokered through SMAC Entertainment, have not been reported to the court.

Darjean’s legal team has raised concerns about the lack of transparency. Sanders’ social media accounts showcase a lavish lifestyle, including high-end clothing and luxury items. Yet, the bankruptcy schedules fail to account for these expenditures. Additionally, Sanders’ ownership of two LLCs—Big 21 LLC and SS21 LLC—remains murky, with little information provided about their workings or NIL.

Sanders’ case highlights the complexities of NIL deals for student-athletes. As college athletes increasingly monetize their fame, ensuring proper financial management becomes crucial. The clash between legal obligations and the allure of luxury goods underscores the need for education and accountability.
