Master P’s son Hercy Miller has signed a multi-million dollar deal to be a brand ambassador for tech company Web Apps America while playing basketball as a freshman at Tennessee State University this fall.
The endorsement deal comes after the NCAA changed its rules to allow college athletes to score endorsement deals and earn money. On Wednesday, the NCAA implemented an interim policy that would permit student-athletes to use their name, image and likeness to earn money while playing college sports, CNBC reported.
The 19-year-old scored a deal just one day after the new NCAA rule went into effect.

Miller will work as a brand ambassador for Web Apps America that specializes in web, mobile and software solutions. The incoming freshman’s endorsement deal is a part of the tech company’s commitment to supporting HBCUs, CBS Sports reported.
“It was a $2 million dollar deal. It’s incredible. This is gonna change the way college athletes want to stay in school,” Master P told TMZ Sports.
The 19-year-old had offers to play for the University of Southern California, University of California, Los Angeles and Louisiana State University before committing to Tennessee State University, 247Sports reported.
Miller is following in his father’s footsteps of playing basketball. Master P played in several NBA preseason games for both the Charlotte Hornets and Toronto Raptors. Miller’s brother, Romeo, also played collegiate basketball for the University of Southern California, CBS Sports reported.
While speaking with TMZ Sports, Miller revealed how he planned to use the money he’ll earn while playing collegiate basketball.
“I learned from my dad, I’m gonna start off by giving back to the community and everyone around me. I have a camp July 21,” Miller said. “I’m giving back to the kids. Giving school supplies.”
The 19-year-old also said he had plans to treat himself by purchasing a Tesla.
