Kentucky freshman sensation John Wall appears on the cover of the Sports Illustrated issue that hits newsstands this week.
The picture has Wall soaring through the air in preparation for a left-handed dunk.
Wall will appear on the cover for the magazine distributed to the southeast United States, Sports Illustrated spokesman Peter Hunter said.
The rest of the country will get a cover that has Dallas Cowboys wide receiver Miles Austin.
Never miss a local story.
Wall's picture will mark the 19th time UK basketball has appeared on the cover of Sports Illustrated, according to the school's 2008-09 media guide. That includes three times in the 1995-96 season and four times in the 1997-98 season.
