Jackson’s video is the fourth in a series of 12 episodes that will launch this academic year.

We are grateful for the opportunity to support Rickea, the Lady Vols and the entire Vol nation,” he added.
Car Wash Convos, ZIPS’ video interview-based approach to NIL, will feature two additional athletes from the University of Tennessee this academic year, including men’s basketball forward Jonas Aidoo and softball pitcher Karlyn Pickens.
