DT Trevon Coley Changes Number; Incoming Player Numbers




While the offseason drags on, there is some news, that is if you consider number changes actual news.

Two FAU football players appear to have changed their numbers from last season, and the incoming signing class has found some digits to put their names to.

Most notably sophomore defensive tackle Trevon Coley has switched from #48 to #11 – the old number Tennessee Titans quarterback Rusty Smith once sported at FAU.

His counterpart along the line, redshirt sophomore tackle Bradin Bryant has also transitioned from #95 to #2, meaning the 260-pound Bryant will have a single-digit stretching over his belly.

It's become a growing trend in college football for large defensive lineman to use small jersey numbers (see here, here and here) – and FAU will join the party.

Junior college transfer quarterback Jaquez Johnson will wear #12 while fellow transfer wide receiver Lucky Whitehead will dawn the coveted #1. Freshman quarterback Greg Hankerson will start his career with #6 and athlete DJ Juste will wear #3.

Listed below is the incoming class's numbers:

#1 Lucky Whitehead - WR
#3 DJ Juste - QB
#6 Greg Hankerson - QB
#6 Reggie Brown - CB
#8 Marc Mauro - S
#12 Jaquez Johnson - QB
#12 Tyler Henderson - S
#19 Trey Hendrickson - DE
#20 Marcus Clark - DB
#22 Robert Miller - DB
#24 Lester Thomas - DB
#25 Jay Warren - RB
#28 Ronnie Scott - CB
#43 Robert Relf - LB
#44 Jeremy Faulk - DT
#48 Andrew Curtis - LB
#51 Khilyni Kennedy - DE
#53 Jakobi Smith - OL
#57 Jace Banfell - OL
#70 Austin Bland - OL
#75 Braden Lyons - OL
#81 Kalib Woods - WR
#87 Dustin Bowens - TE
#96 Lance Burlingame - DT
#99 Derek Butcher - DL

I saw him riding a bike last week without a sling.

sounds about right, but i bet the staff will take it easy with him until the trainers give him the all clear. We're pretty loaded at WR.

Yes but I thought he would be our new return specialist… he's pretty good at it.

For sure, we NEED a dangerous threat returning the kicks. I don't recall EVER having one!

Andrew, you described DJ as an athlete above, was that intentional? Are the coaches projecting him somewhere other than QB in the future?

@TeamBeer….Juste was listed as "athlete" coming out of high school. I'm sure that is all that he meant. DJ is a quality kid and he would do what ever is needed to help his team. He truly is an amazing athlete that reminds me a little of TY Hilton. Time will tell if his talent translates to the college level.

He told me earlier this summer that he will start as a quarterback. He could however play wide receiver down the line. As Local Owl pointed out, only time will tell. Juste could also see the field quicker at wide receiver.

It is exciting to know that we have young talented kids on the team. These guys are the future and the more talent we have, the more options our O coaches will have and the more problems the O causes for the defenses. Our team really has evolved quickly under Coach P. TWO MONTHS TILL KICK OFF !
