With Penn State football's entire freshmen class now settled on campus and starting class this week, we finally get to know what numbers the new Nittany Lions will don to start their collegiate careers.

In case you couldn't keep up the graphic, the newest Nittany Lions will wear:

  • RB Ricky Slade - No. 4
  • WR Jahan Dotson - No. 5
  • WR Justin Shorter - No. 6
  • CB Jordan Miner -No. 8
  • DT Aeneas Hawkins - No. 27
  • DE Jayson Oweh - No. 28
  • LB Charlie Katshir - No. 45
  • OL Rasheed Walker - No. 53
  • OL Nana Asiedu - No. 54
  • OL Juice Scruggs - No. 70
  • OL Bryce Effner - No. 79
  • WR Daniel George - No. 86
  • K Jake Pinegar - No. 92

Right off the bat, Ricky Slade wearing 4 is awesome. Dotson and Shorter get to rock numbers worn by former Nittany Lion receivers DaeSean Hamilton and Derek Moye, respectively. Hawkins and Oweh in the high 20s as defensive linemen is something new and unique. Although, Hawkins' father Artrell wore 27 in the NFL. Charlie Katshir gets the iconic 45, while Juice Scruggs takes on Brendan Mahon's number 70. 

The 10 early enrollees have had their numbers for a while but ICYMI:

  • S Isaiah Humphries - No. 2
  • LB Micah Parsons - No. 11
  • QB Will Levis - No. 17
  • CB Trent Gordan - No. 19
  • LB Jesse Luketa - No. 40
  • DE Nick Tarburton - No. 46
  • TE Zack Kuntz - No. 82
  • TE Pat Freiermuth - No. 87
  • DT Judge Culpepper - No. 88
  • DT PJ Mustipher - No. 93
