CINCINNATI, Dec. 5, 2022 /PRNewswire/ -- Riley Decker Companies today announced they have signed a NIL agreement with David DeJulius, a University of Cincinnati basketball player. David is from Detroit, Michigan and transferred from Michigan where he played the 2018 - 2019 and 2019 - 2020 seasons with the Wolverines. Now with his strong connection to Cincinnati, he is a perfect brand ambassador for the local markets where the RDC brands have a strong presence.
Riley Decker is a family of staffing brands servicing light industrial, skilled trades, and healthcare segments.
David has had a strong basketball career starting at East English Village Preparatory Academy in Detroit where he was tabbed a finalist for the state's Mr. Basketball award and named a two-time Class A First Team selection by the Associated Press. He went on to play at the University of Michigan for 2 seasons. He transferred to the University of Cincinnati in 2020. David is impactful off the court as well, doing a multitude of activities to help inner city kids in both Cincinnati as well as his hometown, Detroit. He also gives 100% of the money from his jersey sales back to those kids.
"Couldn't be more excited to have David representing the Riley Decker Companies' brands. I have been fortunate to get to know David over the past 2 years. He embodies our core pillars of effort-accountability and results. He shows great charisma on and off the court and is also a great role model to the youth in our community and back home in Michigan as well as anyone aspiring to be a student-athlete. We are excited to support David throughout the 2022 - 2023 season along with his continued successes later in life!" said Kyle Decker, CEO and Co-founder of RDC.
