View Full Profile is the lead plantiff in the Jenkins case (hence the name).
The Jenkins case, which was originally filed in New Jersey in March, doesn't have the narrow focus of O'Bannon, which involves only name, image and likeness rights. Jenkins seeks to drop a bomb on the business model for college sports, strip away the NCAA's compensation rules and truly open the market for football and men's basketball players.
Staples went on to talk about some of the specifics that could be impacted by the lawsuit:
Losing the Jenkins case could mean that the NCAA could no longer enforce scholarship limits or the amount schools could pay for scholarships. It would be an open market, and the finances could change considerably.
Jenkins could do a 'hold us back version 2.0' rap about the NCAA if he wins his lawsuit.
