Sevyn Banks will finally be wearing his namesake number in 2020.

The junior cornerback, who has worn No. 12 for the first two years of his Ohio State career, announced Monday night that he is now wearing No. 7.

Junior linebacker Teradja Mitchell, who wore No. 7 for the past two seasons, indicated that he will be switching to No. 3.

Junior wide receiver Chris Olave, meanwhile, announced Monday night that he will be wearing No. 2, which was previously occupied by J.K. Dobbins, in 2020 after wearing No. 17 for his first two seasons as a Buckeye. Olave previously wore No. 2 in high school.

Ohio State has not yet updated its online roster with the new jersey numbers, but at some point in the next two weeks, we should also learn what numbers each of the 14 early-enrollee freshmen will be wearing in 2020, as well as any other possible number changes that could be coming for returning Buckeyes.
