$299.99 / month

This is a comprehensive, regularly-updated list of every Division I men’s college basketball player’s Twitter and Instagram accounts, their follower counts on both platforms and follower-count growth rates dating back to November 2021.

There are 5,492 people in the spreadsheet. Every program from every conference is included, as well as players’ school, position, year and hometown.

The monthly subscription includes the tracking of athletes’ follower counts, which is done twice-per-month. Our subscribers receive an updated database after each update, sent via email, with the latest follower counts and growth rates both listed. The most-recent update was sent out on February 15, 2022.


The NIL era in college athletics has presented individuals and companies looking to strike NIL deals with men’s college basketball players with a common and consistent question: Where do we even start?


Our database of college basketball players’ social-media accounts includes every Division I player in the country. It lists their Twitter and Instagram accounts and the number of followers they have on those platforms. Those follower counts are tracked once every two weeks, allowing our subscribers to see growth rates over weeks, months and seasons.

The database is also sortable — by a player’s year in school, position, number of followers, growth rates over varying lengths of time, state they play in and school they play for.

Here is a sample of Instagram growth rate during the period of Nov. 15, 2021 to Nov. 30, 2021.

Please email Eric Van Dril at, if you’d like to see a different sample in Excel format.

Note: This database was initially built in the fall of 2021, so follower counts date back to November 15, 2021. Updates will be sent twice-per-month — soon after the updated follower counts have been compiled.
