For the first two years of his Ohio State career, Olave donned No. 17. Olave switched to No. 2 for the final two seasons of his time in Columbus from 2020-21. During the 2018-19 seasons, running back J.K. Dobbins was completing his career and wearing the No. 2.

The New Orleans Saints recently revealed that Olave will return to double digits and will wear No. 12. That number will be worn during minicamp and could be changed before the regular season.
