LSU fans will see a familiar face and a familiar, um, body when they pick up the 2015 edition of the ESPN The Magazine Body Issue, which appears online July 6 and at newstands July 10, ESPN announced on its website.

Odell Beckham Jr., New York Giants wide receiver and former LSU star, will appear in the issue along with other top athletes from Major League Baseball, the NBA, the WNBA, the Olympics, skateboarding, rugby and more.

This is the seventh annual edition of the Body Issue, which will include photos, interviews and videos of the athletes, who appear nearly nude.

The magazine is just the latest, um, national exposure for Beckham, who has emerged as a superstar receiver with 91 catches for 1,305 yards and 12 touchdowns in 12 games during his rookie season last year.

In November, he wowed NFL audiences with a spectacular one-handed touchdown catch that some have called the greatest catch ever.

And earlier this year, he was selected to grace the cover of EA Sports’ Madden NFL 16 video game.
