You think Embry-Riddle German tennis player Sabrina Ehrenfort can go out and profit off some sponsored Instagram posts? No she cannot, according to those NCAA gangsters who keep these draconian rules against hard-working athletes making a little side money while working hard for their schools on and off the court. I’ve already told you about Cleveland State Croatian tennis player Klara Mrcela and her Instagram following that has now crossed 47k thanks in part to yesterday’s post on how she’s building a massive following that she can’t cash in on.
That got me thinking about other NCAA tennis athletes out there who could be in Mrcela’s same spot. One thing led to another and Ehrenfort was on my radar. Now she doesn’t have nearly the following of Mrcela, but that could change real fast. Just a junior, Ehrenfort has been firing up the content machine a little more often lately and from what I can see the followers are now starting to roll. It’s just a matter of time.
ITA Scholar-Athlete…named to the Sunshine State Conference Commissioner’s Honor Roll…owned a 9-9 singles record…was 3-3 at No. 3 singles and 6-6 at the fourth spot…owned a four-match winning streak from March 8-13…scored the clinching point against Palm Beach Atlantic with a hard-fought 7-6 (2), 6-4 win over Consuela van Grinsve (April 7).
This is also where I should mention Sabrina is a Astronomy and Astrophysics. I’m telling you, that’s a very limited Instagram market that could lead to a huge following. I’m not even sure what job people leave school with via an Astrophysics diploma, but I’m sure there’s a huge segment of Instagram that would listen to what Sabrina’s saying on the field.
