The official Twitter account for the Miami Hurricanes football team tweeted a photo of Van Dyke with the caption “Relentlessly working. All focus on 2023. 100% Cane!” Van Dyke retweeted the original tweet. Van Dyke has more than 20 NIL deals that include major Miami benefactor John Ruiz’s company Life Wallet.
