Kentucky added another walk-on this week, and its players have been assigned their numbers.
While UK hasn't made anything official for its roster next season, multiple players have announced what number will adorn their Wildcats uniform.
Marcus Lee made it clear he will be wearing No. 00, the first to wear it for a full season since Tony Delk. He wore No. 22 in high school.
Dakari Johnson will wear No. 44 to honor his grandfather, Jitu Weusi, who played at Long Island University.
Derek Willis will wear No. 35. He wore No. 33 in high school, but Kyle Wiltjer will retain that number.
James Young and Aaron Harrison are expected to wear No. 1 and No. 2, respectively. Both wore those numbers in high school and there are no returning players who wore those numbers.
Andrew Harrison wore No. 5 throughout high school. That number is currently worn by Jarrod Polson.
Julius Randle is expected to wear No. 30.
