Notre Dame Football: Pair Of Irish Defenders Change Their Jersey Number

It's new number season!

NCAA Football: Navy at Notre Dame Matt Cashore-USA TODAY Sports

With players departing from the Notre Dame Fighting Irish, there are a few jersey numbers that are now open for the taking by current players. While there may be a few more changes before Notre Dame gets its scholarship count down to 85 from 89, we know of two changes so far.

  • #18 Cornerback Troy Pride Jr. is now... #5
  • #32 Linebacker D.J. Morgan is now... #15

The first thing I think of when picturing a Notre Dame defensive back wearing #5 is former Irish safety Ajani Sanders (at least I'm pretty sure he wore #5).

I can't help it, but every player on defense that wears #15 will always be Allen Rossum to me - yes even you Preston Jackson.
