Players have their favorite numbers from years of playing with a specific number from pee wee, little league, high school, etc.
Some players, when they are transfers or incoming freshman, don’t have an option. They have to take the ones not assigned or what’s available.
With Spring Football upon us at Ohio State, the fans will have to get used to several new numbers on returning players and the incoming ones.
Emeka Egbuka from #2 to #12.
Miyan Willams from #28 to #3.
Oklahoma State transfer, Tanner McCalister from #2 at Oklahoma State to #15.
The incoming players have their numbers:
Gabe Powers is wearing #36.
Devin Brown has #15.
Caleb Burton wears #12.
C.J. Hicks wearing #11.
Fans have to remember that with college football, there are several duplicate numbers on a roster. However, duplicated numbers can not be on the field at the same time.
