New Numbers for Some Nittany Lions

Some Penn State football players will be wearing different jersey numbers this fall.

Penn State announced the following changes: redshirt freshman wide receiver Irvin Charles is switching from No. 85 to No. 11 (worn by since-dismissed tight end Brent Wilkerson on offense last season). Nick Scott, who moved from running back to cornerback to safety during the offseason, is switching from No. 24 to No. 4. Redshirt freshman quarterback Tommy Stevens, who is competing for the starting job, will switch from No. 4 to No. 2.


Walk-on cornerback Desi Davis is switching from 31 to 38. Walk-on linebacker Jan Johnson is switching from 34 to 36. Redshirt freshman safety Jarvis Miller is switching from 14 to 9 (worn by Jordan Lucas last year). Walk-on defensive tackle Ryan Monk is switching from 63 to 91. Walk-on offensive guard Zach Simpson is going from 62 to 64.
