The WE ARE… Collective announces the signing of Penn State safety Ji’Ayir Brown as part of its targeted efforts to attract the school’s top athletes and enhance their opportunities to maximize their earnings from Name, Image, and Likeness (NIL) efforts.

Brown, the nation’s co-leader in interceptions in 2021 added, “I’m thrilled to be part of the WE ARE… Family, and I look forward to meeting the members who support us.”

The WE ARE… Collective, founded by Pennsylvania attorney, businessman and long-time Penn State fan Michael Krentzman, is a fully-evolved, transparently compliant NIL. It launches creative and profitable new opportunities for student-athletes and the community to ensure that Penn State teams remain competitive, expand their national prominence, keep their current athletes out of the transfer portal and enhance the opportunities for current and newly enrolled athletes to maximize their NIL earnings.

The collective’s website is now live and Nittany Lion supporters can contribute to WE ARE… efforts as insiders providing solutions for Penn State’s athletes.

“The access we have within Penn State’s athletic community is unparalleled and enables us to aggressively answer their needs in a tactical way to ensure Penn State’s success,” Krentzman said. “The signing of Ji’Ayir is just one example of many initiatives we have planned that set us apart and empower Penn State’s athletes and programs.”

WE ARE… is an agile organization and has the ability to move quickly on behalf of supporters and players, particularly where there is an acute need. WE ARE… will execute NIL deals based on the priorities of each program.

When you subscribe to WE ARE…, you can be assured that your contributions will go directly and immediately to the athletes that matter the most to these programs today.

The financial assistance will always be a part of a wider package for players, including access to top-level coaching, facilities, training, academics, and the greatest game-day experience in college athletics.

In addition to its compliance and athlete auditing tools, WE ARE…’s work with ReKT Global’s Xchange Factor platform will allow individual supporters to join a premium insider membership program giving members personal and meaningful relationships with the student-athletes through virtual and in-person meet-and-greet events, exclusive merchandise, NFTs and more.
