2001 Media Guide: Shane Olivea is one of the Buckeyes’ top young offensive line prospects … combines size, speed, quickness and agility … lettered last year as a true freshman and was the No. 2 right tackle behind senior Henry Fleming … forced into action sooner than the coaching staff hoped, but the unanticipated loss of Tyson Walter at left tackle created a numbers shortage that made it necessary to play a number of freshman immediately … moved to guard last spring and is expected to start on the right side this fall, succeeding two-year regular Tam Hopkins … is the biggest of the OSU guards … has excellent skills and can be a devastating blocker.

2000 Season: Appeared in four games for a total of 19 minutes … longest stint was nine minutes at Iowa.

High School: Two-time First Team All-New York selection … USA Today Honorable Mention All-America … considered by many as the top offensive line prospect not only in the East but in the nation … rated No. 8 in the nation and the No. 1 offensive line prospect in the East by SuperPrep … ranked No. 33 as an offensive line prospect by Rivals100.com … four-year starter at both offensive and defensive tackles … combines size, speed, quickness and agility.

Personal: His parents are Al and Jean Olivea … born Oct. 7, 1981.
