Pitt Unveils New Jersey Numbers Ahead of 2023 Season

We are officially able to say that as of next Monday, it is officially a Pitt game week. Wofford will be on the clock.

There is one week of summer camp left, with Friday’s Football Kickoff Luncheon serving as the sort of official start of the season, and jersey numbers have officially been sorted out.

With a handful of prominent jersey numbers up for grabs after the likes of Israel Abanikanda, SirVocea Dennis and Calijah Kancey all heading to the NFL, and all of their numbers have been claimed.

Deandre Jules sliding into the No. 0 jersey is fitting after his excellent offseason, really working his way into the rotation — and possibly even a breakout campaign. Daejon Reynolds talked about switching out of 81 earlier this season, and while he didn’t get 2, he did get the No. 3 jersey.

Kenny Johnson, the breakout performer of the summer, slid into the No. 2 jersey, perhaps a tad more fitting than 35. And Samuel Okunlola slid from 17 to Kancey’s vacated No. 8. Also fitting.

Both Javon McIntyre (7) and P.J. O’Brien Jr. (5) will be in the single digits this season.

Here are the new jersey numbers:

Deandre Jules — 90 to 0

Kenny Johnson — 35 to 2

Daejon Reynolds — 81 to 3

P.J. O’Brien Jr. — 22 to 5

Nate Temple — 16 to 6

Javon McIntyre — 20 to 7

Samuel Okunlola — 17 to 8

Ryland Gandy — 18 to 10

Zion Fowler-El –– 23 to 12

Tamarion Crumpley — 24 to 15

Montravius Lloyd — 28 to 15

Jesse Anderson — 36 to 16

Israel Polk — 27 to 18

Jordan Bass — 25 to 20

Steph Hall — 37 to 25
