After announcing his decision to enter the transfer portal on April 3rd, Utah State center Great Osobor remains one of the biggest names available this offseason.

Osobor has commanded tremendous amounts of interest in the transfer portal this offseason and has narrowed in on three schools for visits.


According to a report from the Field of 68’s Jeff Goodman, Osobor has visited Texas Tech, Louisville, and Washington but has not made a decision yet.

Osobor is the top-ranked remaining player in the transfer portal after posting incredible numbers during his junior season. The 6-foot-8, 250-pound big man averaged 17.7 points, 9.0 rebounds, and 2.8 assists per game while connecting on 57.7% of shots from the field.

While most major recruiting services listed Osobor as an unranked prospect when he came out of high school, the England native worked his way into a four-star portal prospect three seasons later. Osobor is the seventh-ranked player in the portal on the 247Sports index and the second-ranked player at his position.

While Texas Tech will still have to beat out Washington and Louisville for his services, should the junior center wind up in the Big 12 Conference as a Red Raider, the league will have added yet another talented big man to its ranks.
