With next year’s roster finally set, the incoming freshmen are sharing their jersey numbers on Twitter. Since Isaiah Briscoe is coming back, Bam Adebayo is foregoing his #13 for #3:

Meanwhile, Sacha Killeya-Jones will wear #1:

Brad Calipari will wear #20:

Wenyen Gabriel said he plans to wear #32 on Twitter a few weeks back. No word on De’Aaron Fox or Malik Monk, who both wore #5 in high school. Maybe Fox will defer to #0, which he wore during AAU.

 

UPDATE: Fox just tweeted that he’ll wear #0…

And Monk #5:

    Calipari may have 11 scholarships to work with next season. That could be an unbelievable class, or the worst team we’ve seen in a while.

    Looks like 10 guys on that roster who can actually play, they should have enough depth if Cal lets them all see minutes.

      9 guards, 6 forwards. Practice will be interesting

    Bam’s game kind of reminds me of Terrance Jones.

    I don’t think 2 guys wearing #32 is going to work.

    Hey Dillion… not sure if anyone told you… but you’ll be changing your number.

    Would you like 653345 or 134246?
