Jordan Wright will wear Chris Oats’ No. 22 against Missouri

To continue Kentucky’s weekly tradition for the season, outside linebacker Jamin Davis will wear No. 22 against Missouri in honor of Chris Oats.

This comes after UK head coach Mark Stoops announced in the days leading up to the season that one player will wear Oats’ number each week in his honor and to show support.

Linebacker DeAndre Square wore No. 22 in the season-opener at Auburn, followed by tight end Keaton Upshaw sporting the number in Week 2 against Ole Miss, Jamin Davis in Week 3 against Mississippi State, and Boogie Watson in Week 4 against Tennessee.

Oats, who was hospitalized with a serious medical issue back in May and spent months in a physical rehabilitation facility, returned home earlier this month.

The family has organized a GoFundMe campaign to help cover medical bills and expenses, which has raised over $35,000 thus far.

Time to win another one for Oats.
