Kansas phenom Andrew Wiggins has yet to step foot on the floor for an actual college basketball game, but the expectations in Lawrence are through the roof for the kid. And while it seems that the hype surrounding Wiggins is already sky high, the truth is probably that this is only the beginning. In fact, Wiggins is already about to accomplish a major goal of many athletes in the very near future — appearing on the cover of Sports Illustrated.

Yeah, I’d say that’s quite an honor. Thankfully, we’re only a few weeks away from the start of college basketball season — it’s almost time to see what Wiggins is made of.
