LSU freshman Ben Simmons is featured on the cover of the Blue Ribbon College Basketball Yearbook as one of five preseason All-America picks for the upcoming season.

The yearbook, which is celebrating its 35th season, has two Southeastern Conference players on the All-America team for the first time as Simmons is joined by Kentucky freshman Skal Labissiere.

The other players named to the preseason All-America team, which earned them a spot on the cover of the Blue Ribbon yearbook as well, are Virginia senior Malcolm Brogdon, Iowa State senior Georges Niang, and Providence junior Kris Dunn.
