Every week, will join in the popular “Follow Friday” tradition and highlight one of the Twitter accounts we’re following. This week’s pick is @BIGG_ZIMMStephen Zimmerman, who this week was named to the USA roster for the 2015 Nike Hoop Summit.

Zimmerman, a 7-foot center who won gold with USA Basketball last summer as a member of the 2014 FIBA U18 Championship Team, is a senior at Bishop Gorman High School in Las Vegas, where he’s a teammate of fellow USA Basketball gold medalist Chase Jeter (who will also be playing in this year’s Nike Hoop Summit).

One of the few highly-regarded recruits who has yet to declare his college intentions for the fall, Zimmerman did recently post a photo in which he posed with the UNLV fans who showed up to cheer him on at a Bishop Gorman game.

Here are a few recent posts from @BIGG_ZIMM, including a retweet of his little sister’s basketball exploits from their mom’s Instragram account:
