Nebraska Football: Joshua Moore Wearning No. 2 To Honor Late Brother

Future Nebraska football player Joshua Moore will not be joining the Cornhuskers until the Class of 2018 enrolls at the university, but he already has picked out his jersey number for a very personal reason.

This week, Moore took to social media to announce he will be wearing No. 2 when he suits up to begin his collegiate career.

The reason Moore provided for picking the No. 2 is as a tribute to his late brother, Quintin. Moore said that he last saw his brothers two days before his death, so he will wear the No. 2 in honor of him.
