While wearing the Gold and Blue at WVU, Bruce Irvin wore the #11. After getting drafted by the Seattle Seahawks with the 15th pick in the 1st Round of the NFL Draft this past weekend, Irvin will have to change jersey numbers.
He chose the #51. His jersey is not available to the public as of yet, but we now know what it will look like (pictured below). In case you missed it, Reebok’s contract with the NFL expired after last season as makers of all their jerseys. In stepped Nike, and they proceeded to redesign all the NFL’s jerseys in typical Nike fashion.
Bruce Irvin stated on Twitter that he would not change his handle (@BIrvin_WVU11) for his new team or number. Once a Mountaineer, always a Mountaineer.
The Seahawks redesign is one that many people think might be the best. Bruce Irvin gets to wear this jersey.
