With the start of the college basketball regular season just over two months away, a prominent college basketball preview magazine will hit newsstands next month.

The Lindy’s Sports college basketball preview magazine will be available starting September 12.

And Indiana’s Xavier Johnson will be on the regional cover sold in Indiana.

The 6-foot-3 point guard has scored 1,674 points in his career between stops at Pittsburgh and Indiana. He played in 11 games last season before suffering a season-ending foot injury. Johnson was granted a medical hardship waiver earlier in the offseason.

Purdue’s Zach Edey, the reigning national player of the year, will be on the cover with Johnson. New Notre Dame coach Micah Shrewsberry is also on the cover as is Butler’s Jalen Thomas.

The cover also revealed the preseason top 10 for Lindy’s:

1. Kansas
2. Duke
3. Purdue
4. Michigan State
5. Tennessee
6. Marquette
7. Houston
8. Creighton
9. Miami (FL)
10. Arkansas
