Photo: Louisville 5-Star Freshman V.J. King To Wear #0 With The Cardinals Like Damion Lee

The No. 0 jersey at Louisville has been passed from Damion Lee to one of the Cardinals' incoming freshman. 

V.J. King, a five-star small forward in the 2016 class, announced on Saturday that he will be donning the number at Louisville. 

The 6-foot-6, 189-pound prospect from Paul VI Catholic (Fairfax, Va.) showed off his new locker on Twitter, tweeting it at Lee. 

Lee, who averaged 15.9 points and 3.9 rebounds a game wearing the number in 2015-16, approves.

Louisville is expected to begin the season ranked in the top 10.
