blake-griffin-ncaa-10.jpgA day after EA Sports announced that Chicago Blackhawk Patrick Kane would be its NHL 10 cover boy, the video game juggernaut named projected first overall draft pick Blake Griffin the cover athlete for NCAA Basketball 10.

The move should come as no surprise, as Griffin was everyone's Mr. Everything last season for the Oklahoma Sooners. Griffin was the consensus national Player of the Year, winning the Big 12, Associated Press, Naismith, Sporting News, and John Wooden Player of the Year awards.

In a statement released today by EA Sports, Griffin said, "Seeing myself on the cover of NCAA Basketball 10 is such a great tribute to my time at Oklahoma. I loved playing in front of passionate fans and competing against some of the best schools in the country. Now I am looking forward to competing at the next level against the best players in the world."
