Former ASU QB Keller settles class action suit over video game likeness
By Brad Denny
PHOENIX -- The fight is finally over for former ASU quarterback Sam Keller.
The NCAA has settled for $20 million in Keller's class action lawsuit against the NCAA and EA Sports for using the likenesses of collegiate athletes in it's video games.
Keller began this fight way back in 2008. A few months ago, EA Sports a few months ago settled for 40 million bringing the grand total to $60 million. As, each athlete stands to make anywhere from $400 to a couple thousand dollars each, this really isn't about the money, it's about helping change the way college athletes are at times exploited.
