Clark is widely regarded as the best player of her generation and shattered numerous records during her tenure as an Iowa Hawkeye.

She also broke the all-time scoring record for the Big Ten conference and won several awards, including the Naismith Player of the Year and the Wooden Award for the second year.

According to the company, Clark will become a brand ambassador and will creatively direct her first-ever signature basketball line, set to launch later this year, among other influential roles.

Rumors also continue to grow about an imminent deal with Nike that includes signature shoes and could break the bank with a lucrative eight figures.
