Chances are, anyone who has watched college basketball over the last four years has heard the phrase, "Redick for three!" The Redick in question is of course J.J., the Duke Blue Devils superstar who has won numerous awards, including multiple player of the year trophies.
Add one more honor to the long list of Redick's accolades--cover athlete for 2K Sports' College Hoops 2K7. Redick, who was drafted by the Orlando Magic in the off-season, will also serve as the game's spokesperson, temporarily putting to rest that his marketability was tarnished by a DUI charge in June.
A statement from 2K Sports today also revealed that the game, previously announced only for the Xbox 360, is headed to the PlayStation 3, PlayStation 2, and Xbox this fall. The fall release makes it a likely candidate for a launch title on the PS3, which hits US stores on November 17.
Redick, though one of the best players in college basketball history, was often the focus of hatred from fans as the best player for high-profile (and much maligned) Duke University. One of Redick's best friends and main competition last year for player of the year honors, former Gonzaga star Adam Morrison, remains his rival on the digital court, as he is now doing promotional work for Electronic Arts' NBA Live 07.
