News: Durant will be the second youngest EA cover boy ever.
The University of Texas' Kevin Durant, who many are predicting to be the first or second overall pick in this week's NBA Draft, will appear on the cover of EA's NCAA March Madness 08. Durant, who is 18, will be the second youngest cover athlete in EA Sports history. Only Freddy Adu (who was 16 when he appeared on the FIFA Soccer 06 cover) was younger.
"A lot of great players have been chosen to be on the cover of EA Sports video games, and it is an honor to be in their company," said Durant. "When I see the game on store shelves, it is really going to hit home that it's me on the cover of March Madness 08. I'm going to be first in line to buy all the copies to hand out to all my friends. It's like a dream come true."
NCAA March Madness 08 is being developed by EA Canada and is scheduled to be released on the PS2, PS3 and Xbox 360 sometime near the end of the year.
We'll have more soon.
