When you are a high-profile college athlete, the world is watching every one of your moves. The majority of college athletes have social media profiles. Some have used it more than others, while some have gotten into trouble with the NCAA for what they post online. With the 2014 NBA Draft receiving much hype, we decided to put together a list of the prospects you absolutely need to follow.

30. Rodney Hood â€“ Forward/Redshirt Sophomore/Duke
Twitter Handle â€“ @Rodney_hood
Instagram â€“ Hoodie5
The Duke transfer is having a huge impact on the Blue Devils this year and has become one of the best prospects in the country. While his game has brought some noise in Durham, he is very conservative when it comes to what he tweets about. His timeline reaches back to the year 2012 on one page.
Good luck to the football squad today.

29. Montrezl Harrell â€“ Forward/Sophomore/Lousiville
Twitter Handle – @MONSTATREZZ
Harrell is constantly improving on the court at Louisville and is becoming a better low-post scorer that the Cardinals can give the ball too. On social media he has not tweeted that much during the season but when he does everything, of course, is basketball-related.
Shower was love food was great but I’m not going to sleep I’m about to get me some shoots in pool

28. T.J. Warren â€“ Forward/Sophomore/North Carolina State
Twitter Handle – @T24Warren
T.J. Warren is in the mold of a young Paul Pierce at N.C. State. He has a smooth game that translates for his actions off the court. If you are looking for a Twitter profile with some inspiration quotes, T.J. is your guy.
Richard Sherman I’m with ya! I love the passion

27. Markel Brown â€“ Senior/Guard/Oklahoma State
Twitter Handle – @iMarkelBrown22
Instagram – IMarkelBrown22
Markel Brown is the unsung hero for the Oklahoma State basketball team playing in the shadow of teammate Marcus Smart. He is very athletic and has shown that he can shoot the ball from deep. On Twitter, he does not show that much but tweets about his approach on gameday.

24. Spencer Dinwiddie â€“ Guard/Junior/Colorado
Twitter Handle â€“ @SDinwiddie_25
