USC incoming freshman Korey Foreman says he is going to wear No. 0.
It became a legal number last season. Since it is USC, the question isn’t who will wear zero but how many players will wear it at the same time?
USC lets recruits dictate the numbers they wear, which creates a lot of double numbers. Last season, 25 players wore the same number. That’s why you had situations where Tyler Vaughns was scrambling to put on a jersey to return a punt because Isaiah Pola-Mao was already on the field.
I bet this year USC could have three players who want the same number because of seniors returning under the new pandemic eligibility rules. But one of the three will transfer so it won’t matter. That’s my prediction in the offseason.
