With Skylar Diggins now moving to the WNBA with the Tulsa Shock, does that leave the women’s college basketball ranks barren and arid of eye candy hoop stars? Absolutely not! Enter the Gonzalez twins Dylan and Dakota from …wait for it…Idaho!?! They already have fans across the country. They are one of the most followed combo on Instagram ALREADY LOL! If Skylar Diggns is signed to ROC NATION/CAA Sports Agency now, I have no doubt that in the next 4 years Jay-Z will be quick to sign these girls. This would all depend if they do well while playing in college.

Sports marketing firms must be salivating over these girls and the enormous amount of marketing potential.
