An endorsement deal would work like any professional athlete, but I think

the majority of these kids aren't going to be signing deals with Nike or even their local car dealerships.

They will either:
A) Go the Ahlers route and start a lifestyle brand as a way to bring in extra loot (which is taxable like any other business)
B) (per your social media question) they can develop a large following on their social media platform and be paid to plug products. Yes, they'd get a 1099 if we're talking anything over $600, but most of these things are more like "post about our kayak rental place and we'll give you $100" type of scenarios.
C) (The easiest path in my opinion) start a Patreon page. People can subscribe at various giving levels for access to videos, Q&As, whatever. As I said in an earlier post, they can post pictures of their dog once a week if they want. It's just a way for donors to be able to send money over to a student athlete that's "not for football"(wink).
