‘Grantland’ latest to take note of Dantzler's Twitter personality

At 6 feet, 7 inches tall and weighing more than 300 pounds, Watts Dantzler probably doesn’t have a problem being noticed.

In the crowded world of social media, he is also standing out.

The ESPN website “Grantl-and” recently wrote about Dantzler, a former Dalton High School football standout and current offensive lineman for the University of Georgia, in its “Who’s That Guy” section. The profile highlights his time on the playing field and his proliferating social media accounts.

“Dude is everywhere, with an active offseason presence on YouTube and year-round good times on Instagram,” according to the website. “It’s his Twitter account, however, that makes Dantzler a social media star on the rise.”

This past week, Sports Illustrated and SI.com named Dantzler as one of the top 100 Twitter accounts in the sporting world.
