I mentioned back in April that wide receiver Darreus Rogers would wear No. 1 next season and the official USC roster lists him as No. 1. It should be no big deal but the number has been out of circulation since the 2009 season because Lane Kiffin took it away from De’Von Flournoy and never awarded it again.
The number had no tradition other Mike Williams wore it and Kiffin wanted to take credit for Williams. Thankfully, now it just becomes another popular single-digit number.
