Deuce Vaughn has a new name, image and likeness deal that is sure to be of interest to Kansas State football fans.

Vaughn, an All-American running back who is entering his junior season with the Wildcats, has partnered with Charlie Hustle Clothing on a T-shirt that is now available for purchase via the Kansas City company’s website.

The shirt is lavender, and it depicts Vaughn running with the football in a K-State uniform on top of the words “Deuce is Loose.” A copy of Vaughn’s signature can also be found on the shirt in white script.

Vaughn is believed to be the first K-State football player to strike this kind of NIL deal with a clothing company.

But it’s not his first NIL deal. Earlier this summer, he starred alongside K-State defensive end Felix Anudike-Uzomah in a humor-filled commercial for Cat Cans, a portable restrooms company.

Vaughn has quickly become the face of K-State football ever since he arrived on campus as a freshman in 2020. The junior running back has already piled up 3,093 all-purpose yards and scored 31 touchdowns with the Wildcats.
