Canadian basketball player and top prospect Andrew Wiggins appears on the cover of this week’s Sports Illustrated.

The 6-foot-8, 200-pound Kansas freshman is expected to go first overall in the 2014 NBA Draft.

Wiggins, from Vaughan, Ont., is wearing his No. 22 Jayhawks jersey on the cover. The story compares his arrival at the school to the arrival of former Kansas stars Wilt Chamberlain and Danny Manning.

Wiggins is coming off a standout season at Huntington Prep in West Virginia.

The Naismith High School player of the year averaged 23.4 points and 11.2 rebounds per game and led the team to a 30-3 record.
