It was apparently news yesterday that JT Daniels will wear No. 18 next season. And Amon-Ra St. Brown will wear No. 8.
These were the numbers they wore at Mater Dei. And I wrote on June 9 they would wear these numbers. So why was it “revealed” yesterday?
More importantly, I wrote linebacker Palaie Gaoteote would wear No. 1 even though it was assumed he would be awarded the prestigious No. 55.
Sam Darnold thought about wearing No. 18 at USC but was issued No. 14 and did not really care. I’m sure Clay Helton would have moved mountains to make sure Daniels got his preferred No. 18.
