Big 12 school evaluates Osby

As Romero Osby, a 6-foot-7, 210-pound forward from Northeast Lauderdale High School in Meridian, Miss., continues to put up solid numbers across the stat line, a Big 12 school recently evaluated his play.
Oklahoma is the latest school to watch Osby, a three-star 2008 prospect, in action. Wake Forest, Mississippi State and Alabama are the other schools that have evaluated Osby this season. Mississippi State is the one school to have offered at this point.
Osby, who is also considering Louisville, has three schools who have not yet watched him this year at the top of his list.
"My top three are Memphis, Georgia Tech and North Carolina," said Osby. "With Memphis, I like the style of play. Coach Cal doesn't limit his players. He lets them be interchangeable, and I like how he uses Shawne Williams.
"I went to Georgia Tech's Underclassmen Day in the fall, and I'm impressed with Coach Hewitt's coaching in the individual workouts. I really like Coach Hewitt and think he is a great guy.
"North Carolina really spreads the offense around, and they play in a great conference. They are a very well coached team."
Osby's, squad stands at 14-6, and he is averaging 20 points, 10 rebounds, 4 assists, 4 blocks and 2 steals per game.
A student of the game, Osby is well aware of the areas of his game that need improving.
"I'm really working on my lateral quickness, so I can lock down wing players," he said. "I also want to keep getting stronger. I feel my best attribute is how I handle the ball for my size and see the court."
