Garrett Wilson to wear No. 5 in 2024, gets number passed on by Thomas Morstead

Jersey No. 5 was officially passed on Monday as punter Thomas Morstead handed the number over to wide receiver Garrett Wilson.

It had already been known since April that Wilson would eventually change his jersey number from 17 to 5, the number he wore at Ohio State.

Morstead donned the number one last year in 2023 before passing the torch as it were to Wilson, who will continue to grow his own legacy with his old college number.

Wilson has started his career with two seasons reaching 1,000 yards receiving and came five catches short of hitting 100 this season. All this while playing with multiple quarterbacks in such a short time. One can only wonder how his numbers can improve with steady quarterback play.
