Jimmer Fredette lining up endorsements

Jimmer Fredette is beginning to reap the rewards from his BYU career and helping sell ... windshield and auto glass repair.

Fredette and fellow senior Jackson Emery are endorsing Diamond Glass, a Utah-based company that is utilizing the successful backcourt and giving away signed jerseys to promote the opening of a Salt Lake City location.

Since Fredette completed his career and ended it as the consensus national player of the year, business offers have been pouring in. His image can be found on posters selling for $14.95 on JimmerPoster.com after he agreed to a photo shoot. And according to the Deseret News, he'll have many more opportunities.

These include offers for a restaurant to be named "Jimmer's Place," a travel business, several offers for posters, a book, speaking engagements, appearance engagements, with all expenses and travel, plus a sizeable amount of cash, paid by the company or corporation. There have been people calling who say they can sell Jimmer clothing on websites, and people wanting to set up autograph sessions and pay him per autograph.

"I can't name some of these because they are currently in negotiations," said [his father] Al.

The strangest request came from the BYU Bookstore on campus. "They called last week and asked if they could get permission to sell Jimmer hats, T-shirts and other items through the store. They said they had the rights as long as he was a BYU player, but that ended with Jimmer's last game. We are close to getting that done."
