LA Clippers forward Kawhi Leonard is set to become the first player in San Diego State University history to have their jersey retired, the school announced.

Leonard will have his No. 15 jersey raised to the rafters on Feb. 1 when the No. 7 ranked Aztecs host Utah State.

The reigning Finals MVP made a significant impact on San Diego State's basketball program in his two collegiate seasons. He led his school to back-to-back Mountain West titles, resulting in a pair of NCAA Tournament appearances.

During his sophomore season in 2010-11, he led SDSU to the Sweet 16 for the first time in program history while finishing with a school-best 34-3 record.

Leonard was a Consensus All-American that season, averaging 15.5 points and 10.6 rebounds per game. His Aztecs started that season a perfect 20-0 behind the play of their star forward.

Leonard is currently thriving in his first season with the Clippers, averaging 26.3 points, 7.4 rebounds, 5.0 assists and 1.9 steals per game.
