Jeudy gave a puzzling answer about wearing the accessory.
“People call me ‘Jew’ for short so I got a Jewish star,” the Alabama star explained. “I’m not Jewish though.”
Jeudy can be seen in some pictures walking into Bryant-Denny Stadium in Tuscaloosa, Ala., wearing the Star of David chain as well.
Jeudy later apologized for possibly offending people.
“Don’t mean no disrespect to the Jewish people! I’m sorry to the people who take my chain offensive!!”

He was a Consensus All-America pick and the Fred Biletnikoff Award winner in 2018. He also led the SEC in receiving touchdowns that season with 14.
