Clemson guard Brevin Galloway discovered a novel way to capitalize on his newfound fame.

Last week, the senior revealed he required emergency surgery for testicular torsion. On Thursday, he announced an NIL deal with underwear brand Shinesty:

"When we heard about Brevin's nightmarish outcome, we knew we had just the solution so this never happens to him again," Shinesty creative director Ben Lauderdale said.

The company said Galloway will receive "an undisclosed amount of cash" to help him cover the cost of the surgery, in addition enough underwear to see him through to the end of his collegiate career.

Galloway remains day-to-day following the injury. Through 21 games, he's averaging 10.6 points and 2.6 assists and shooting 44.6 percent.

If there was ever an endorsement that justified the launch of the NIL era, this was it.
