LSU star linebacker Harold Perkins is making a number change as he enters his second season with the Tigers.

Instead of wearing No. 40 as he did during his breakout freshman season, Perkins will be No. 4, the number he wore in high school.

He will share the number with running back John Emery Jr., who wears the No. 4 on offense.

Perkins was a monster this past year and I hope he can do the same this year. However, why is a simple number change “newsworthy”?

May he send the number into retirement when he leaves. He's already set the bar pretty damn high... and he's just getting started

Harold Perkins doesn’t change jersey numbers, the numbers just fall off.

I feel like its bad juju to switch. Dude had a monster year rockin #40. I would not change at this point. Just my own personal opinion. I always hated switching jersey numbers. Start carving out a Legacy rocking a certain number it would be hard for me to change I guess. As long as you continue to ball Kid

Will claim the gif of #40 getting chucked to the ground by Achane “wasn’t him”.

He compressed that forty down to four, the opposing offense better hang the f*ck on. Cause he's coming — fast and often.

Same lol. These days it seems anytime star players names show up in a headline its not good. My heart sank as well. Glad it was just a number switch.

But dropping the zero doesn’t affect the weight of the jersey since zero has no value.
