The Gonzalez Twins, Dylan and Dakota Gonzalez have decided to hang up their UNLV jerseys and leave collegiate basketball for the music studio. The beautiful twins who are from Pacatello, Idaho, both stand tall at 6’0″ and are not just talented ball players for the UNLV women’s basketball team, but are also Instagram famous, and talented musicians. The twins have graduated college but still had one year of eligibility left to continue playing on the team. However, the duo will forego their final year and pursue other opportunities.
The dynamic twins dominated the basketball court and with their off the court modeling skills, the duo have become two of the hottest models on Instagram.
Both twins have around one million IG followers each. And if you wish to join the growing list of followers, you can do so by following them @miss_dyl and @misss_kota. The twins are known in the music industry as IIGonz.
In a recent interview with SLAM, the Gonzalez Twins revealed that they had decided to forego their final seasons at UNLV to further pursue music and overseas opportunities. Dylan Gonzalez stated,
“….We definitely tried to challenge the system a little bit to make both music and basketball work. At the end of the day, the only thing they would allow us to do was sing the national anthem at a game and make music in our home. It just became this fight as to why we wouldn’t do anything outside of basketball without all of these ticky-tack regulations coming into play. It just became so stressful. At the end of the day, Dakota and I hope that other women are given the freedom to pursue things outside of their sport. Unless you’re in the system, you really don’t understand that this is a job. Playing a collegiate sport is a job that you don’t get paid for like a job. If you’re trying to build a foundation for yourself in another avenue, it’s nearly impossible because you don’t have the time to do it, nor are you allowed to do it. “
The twins have dropped their debut EP Take 1 on SoundCloud and are working on music videos that fans are eagerly awaiting. Listen to all the tracks below.
