Today I received my garnet #99 jersey (just 30 bucks by the way) and it got me thinking about to whom this jersey would belong to next year with Everette Brown playing on Sunday's. And Monday's. And sometimes Thursday's.
Why not take a look at the whole incoming class?
Now, obviously there will be some more number changes by upperclassmen, but I have no knowledge of any other potential moves so I'll just give some thoughts on the incoming class and who I think should have what...
Using Warchant's roster, here are the "open" numbers for next year:
maybe 1 - even if Surrency is gone, let's give this cursed number a rest for a year, then give it to Joyner in '10.
4 - Thompson (needs a single number)
5 - Rhodes
6 - Downs (Derrick Gibson)
8 - Secord
19 - Haulstead (Esko is also 19)
24 - Reid (HS number)
25 - Pryor
32 - Harley
34 - Bright
49 - Mizell
50 - McDaniel (Or maybe have Jamar Jackson switch to give him 55)
61 - Orelus
68 - Prior
74 - Hicks
76 - Phillips
78 - Jenkins
84 - Smith
99 - McAllister (This is what I'm hoping for. Him or Jenkins should be 99, can't go wrong)
Stork is greyshirting so he can wait a year.
And please, let's give Louis Givins a number not 89, it looks ridiculous on him. Maybe give him 8, while Secord redshirts.
