new text begin (a) As a condition of receiving an athletic scholarship from the University of
Minnesota, a student athlete must sign a written agreement obligating the student athlete
to repay the full amount of the scholarship benefit if the student athlete withdraws from
the university, with any athletic eligibility remaining, to become a professional athlete in
the sport for which the scholarship was awarded.
new text end

new text begin (b) The written agreement must provide that any professional athletic contract
that the student athlete enters into after receiving an athletic scholarship must contain a
provision recognizing the University of Minnesota as a third-party beneficiary of the
contract, to the extent of athletic scholarship aid that has been received by the student
athlete from the University of Minnesota as of the date the contract is entered into. The
University of Minnesota's status as a third-party beneficiary is the right to receive directly
from the party that enters into the contract with the student athlete 25 percent of each
payment due to the student athlete under the contract, until the scholarship aid has been
repaid with simple interest at an annual rate of three percent.

new text begin (c) If a student athlete enters into a professional athletic contract that does not
comply with paragraph (b), the party contracting with the student athlete is deemed to
have been aware of the requirements of paragraph (b), and the contract is deemed to
include those provisions, as if they had been expressly included.

under paragraphs (a) and (b).
