The NCAA approved a rule change which will allow the No. 0 jersey to be worn this year by college football teams.
Who will go down in history this season as the UGA player to wear No. 0 in the red and black?
The honor will go to Darnell Washington, a 5-star signee from Las Vegas who will play tight end for the Bulldogs.
This week, UGA updated its football roster on the school’s website, revealing jersey numbers for freshmen and newcomers (i.e. transfers). Here are some numbers of interest:
QB Jamie Newman: He was No. 12 at Wake Forest, but the grad transfer has switched to No. 9 with the Bulldogs.
QB JT Daniels: The USC transfer will wear No. 18, the same digits he had for the Trojans.
DB Kelee Ringo: The freshman from Scottsdale, Ariz., was ranked as the nation’s No. 1 cornerback out of high school last season. He will take the No. 5, as senior defensive lineman Julian Rochester will switch from No. 5 to No. 89 this season.
OL Broderick Jones: The 5-star signee from Lithonia, Ga., will wear No. 59.
DT Jalen Carter: The 5-star signee from Apopka, Fla., will wear No. 88.
