I’m not sure how Ryan found this (ahem!), but yesterday he sent me a link to Seventeen magazine’s contest to find the 17 sexiest guys in America under the age of 21.

The good news?

SLAM high school diary keeper Kevin Love made their top 17. (He’s right in the middle here.)

The bad news?

Kevin was the second person voted off. At least he lasted longer than Mario.

Oh, and while we’re talking preps, big ups to ESPN.com, who write here about the top newcomers in college hoops, and they manage to compare Chase Budinger to both Adam Morrison and Tom Chambers.

I guess they couldn’t think of any other white guys to compare him to.
