(PIX11/CNN) – A lawsuit filed by a former college basketball player seeking to end the NCAA’s control over the rights to college athletes’ names, images and likenesses will head to trial Monday.

As it stands, college athletes whose talent makes universities millions cannot profit from their own images outside of scholarships given to them by their schools.

Former UCLA basketball forward Ed O’Bannon’s lawsuit aims to change that.

Sports attorney Anthony Caruso and former college player Frank Corbett visited the PIX11 Morning News Monday to discuss what the litigation means for the young athletes.
