After an emotional number ceremony earlier this week, 11 more Wahoos earned numbers before Virginia plays Richmond in the first game of the season this Saturday.

The eleven were:

  • Bryce Hall (#34)
  • Jordan Mack (#37)
  • Chris Moore (#39)
  • Lester Coleman (#47)
  • Robert Snyder (#52)
  • Hasise Dubois (#80)
  • Joe Reed (#81)
  • Alex Furbank (#84)
  • Cole Blackman (#85)
  • Juwan Moye (#95)
  • Landan Word (#98)

Of the 11, all but Coleman are true freshmen. Mendenhall said in his weekly press conference that true freshmen did not have the opportunity to select a number at the first ceremony. Coleman is a sophomore.

Among the players without a jersey are Andre Miles-Redmond, a senior defensive tackle; Darious Latimore, the sophomore cornerback; and Tyler Shirley, the junior long-snapper. Shirley was announced as academically ineligible before the season.
