Jackson State's Malachi Wideman has entered a partnership agreement with MOGL. MOGL is a NIL platform and mobile app connecting student-athletes to corporate sponsors and business opportunities. 

Wideman will receive equity in the company. The minority-owned firm, Booked and Busy Talent firm, negotiated the deal.

Wideman played in 11 games in his first season and caught 34 passes for 540 receiving yards. He led the Tigers' receivers with 12 touchdowns. 

Currently, on the hardwood, Malachi has played in 8 games and averaged 7.9 points per contest. 

Wideman is a budding two-sport star for Jackson State. His thrilling receptions on the gridiron and "human highlight film" slam dunks make him an extremely marketable student-athlete.

The partnership with MOGL is Wideman's second major deal. On Jan. 18, he agreed to join Legacy League's NFT platform. Co-founder Kurt Hallead noted about Wideman, "we are extremely excited to welcome Malachi to the Legacy League team. He spearheads a growing list of HBCU student-athletes on our platform ready to solidify their lasting legacies."
