It’s time to break out your old Sojourn Shelton jerseys because incoming freshman running back Jalen Berger is rocking No. 8 this year for the Wisconsin Badgers, per his Instagram Story! Asher Low of the Locked On Badgers podcast had the information first, as far as we can tell.
Wisconsin freshman RB Jalen Berger will wear number 8 this year per his instagram #Badgers— Asher Low (@alow_33) June 15, 2020
If I may say something controversial, I don’t think that No. 8 is a good one for a running back, especially one of Berger’s caliber. Nos. 2, 5, 25, 34 are all far superior choices and hopefully he’ll consider them in the future. Berger was No. 3 in high school and that’s...fine I suppose. That will always be Allen Iverson’s number, regardless of sport so I’m a bit biased on that one.
No. 8 is a fine number for a cornerback, quarterback, safety, even a wide receiver I guess, but it doesn’t sit right with me as a running back number. Please stay tuned to Bucky’s 5th Quarter for more late night, jersey related content in the future.
