The NIL era in college athletics has presented individuals and companies looking to strike NIL deals with college football players with a common and consistent question: Where do we even start?
Our database of college football players’ social-media accounts includes every FBS player in the country. It lists their Instagram, TikTok and Twitter accounts and the number of followers they have on each platform. Their follower counts are tracked once every month, allowing our subscribers to see growth rates over weeks, months and seasons.
Email addresses, pulled from athletes’ Instagram accounts, were added in January 2022. There are 1,357 listed in the football database.
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, where they’re from and the school they play for.
Please email Eric Van Dril at firstname.lastname@example.org, if you’d like to see a 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 once-per-month — soon after the updated follower counts have been compiled.
All sales are final. The sharing of any of our databases is strictly prohibited, per Contact College Athletes’ terms-and-conditions.
