A few interesting notes on the jersey numbers:
- CJ Fredrick wore No. 5 at Iowa and Daimion Collins wore No. 5 in high school. Both will be changing their numbers at Kentucky, leaving the late Terrence Clarke’s jersey number open in 2021-22.
- Kofi Cockburn’s No. 21 jersey is available for the taking, should he commit to UK on Friday.
- No number changes from any of UK’s returning players.
Time to get this thing rolling, BBN.
