Have you ever seen a college player and just knew that they were going to be great in the NFL? Well starting Friday night, October 14th, Mojo is launching the very first College Football Stock Market! What does that mean? Who can trade the stocks? How will it work? What players will be available for trade? What is the meaning of life? Let's discuss!
On Mojo, you can invest in the on-field performance of athletes' NFL careers, with prices that move in-real time, the ability to trade anytime in an instant, with real money on the line, and do so with confidence! Mojo is fully state licensed and regulated by the New Jersey Division of Gaming Enforcement with world-class investors including the NFLPA.
If you’re new to Mojo, a great place to start to best acquaint yourself with us is here. You’ll find a detailed breakdown of the app, what the share prices mean, what determines share price movement, what does Going Long and Going Short mean, why does Mojo recommend Multipliers on veterans, and more!
For clarity: the college stock prices are based on expectations for college players' NFL careers, not their collegiate stats. The stocks on the College Football Stock Market on Mojo will therefore be identical to the NFL stocks, but with two significant differences.
First: NFL share prices are driven by expectations for six simple career stats, which we call “Mojo Value.” The share price equals the sum of a player’s banked career Mojo Value (which is known) and the market’s future expected Mojo Value (which is uncertain). However, in the College Football Stock Market, a player’s stock price is based entirely upon the market’s expectation for their future NFL Mojo Value (not their college stats). Since they aren't yet in the NFL, they by definition can't have any Banked Mojo Value until they're pros.
The other significant difference? We have made the decision that users can't Go Short on college athletes and profit when they fail to meet expectations.
Prices move the same way (based on performance, news and market sentiment). If a collegiate athlete performs above or below expectations in college, or the beat writer announces the backup QB got promoted, or if tons of users are are Going Long at a given price (signaling that the price is too cheap to the market), the share price could change.
Mojo is a licensed sports betting app in NJ, so right now users can only trade when they are physically located in NJ. (Note: you don't have to live in NJ to trade.) Anyone can download the app in the App Store; if you're like me, even if you can't trade right away you will still want to know how consensus expectations C.J. Stroud's NFL future stats compare to NFL players such as Zach Wilson, Daniel Jones, Trevor Lawrence, etc.
120 total College Football quarterbacks will be available to trade when we launch. All eligible Power 5 schools (plus Notre Dame & BYU) and several smaller schools will be represented in this first release! So yes, it’s highly likely as a College Football fan that you will officially be able to buy stock in players from your favorite team right away! This first release will just be focusing on quarterbacks, but subsequent releases will include other positions!
Let's dive into some of the most exciting NFL Prospects available for trade! The complete official list (in alphabetical order by school) can be found at the end of this piece.
C.J. Stroud (Ohio State) and Bryce Young (Alabama) are the two obvious names who stand out to most as future NFL stars. Both were Heisman finalists in 2021. Both are on track to meet up in New York as finalists yet again this season. Bryce Young has improved as a rusher this season. C.J. Stroud has somehow improved on a 98th percentile scheme-adjusted pass efficiency season. The consensus currently expects them to see Round 1 NFL Draft capital next spring.
What other top quarterbacks expected to enter the 2023 NFL Draft are available for trade?
The mayonnaise-in-his-coffee legend Will Levis (Kentucky) will be in the pool! The NFL Draft community seems to be split on him, but that should make for some fun trading!
Hendon Hooker (Tennessee) has scored 49 total touchdowns while throwing just three interceptions since taking over as the Tennessee starting quarterback last season. How he fares down the stretch against a tough SEC schedule (including Alabama & Georgia) should greatly impact his future market perception.
Fun dual threats Max Duggan (TCU), Jordan Travis (Florida State), Dorian Thompson-Robinson (UCLA), and Jalon Daniels (Kansas) are all vastly improving their chances at an NFL future this season. All of them could be incredible moonshot stock candidates!
If you want to look a year further into the NFL Draft future we have budding stars like Caleb Williams (USC) and Drake Maye (North Carolina)! Caleb Williams posted perhaps the best true freshman quarterback performance of all time in 2021. Drake Maye is already up to 22 touchdowns through his first five starts this season!
You can also bet on which current high pedigree backup will inherit the most important quarterback jobs in the nation like Ohio State (Kyle McCord or Devin Brown), Alabama (Jalen Milroe or Ty Simpson), LSU (Garrett Nussmeier or Walker Howard), and more!
And if you just want to take a swing at some top true freshmen, we have some high upside options there too with elite recruiting stars like Cade Klubnik (Clemson), Drew Allar (Penn State), Conner Weigman (Texas A&M) and many more!
Be on the lookout for the College Football Stock Market launch here soon as the Mojo team nears our big day! If you have questions or want to join the community of other Mojo investors check out our Discord:
