After breaking his left wrist in late June, 2008 four-star prospect Romero Osby is back in action as a host of coaching staffs travel to Meridian, Miss., to visit with the 6-foot-7, 210-pound small forward. These coaches will all be playing catch up to Osby's favorite school.
Mississippi State (offer) met with Osby on Monday. Auburn and Ole Miss (offer) will come in Thursday while Alabama (offer) is scheduled for a visit on Friday. Next week, Kansas (offer) and Memphis will sit down with Osby.
All these schools are presently playing catch up with Georgia Tech (offer).
"Georgia Tech is my favorite," said Osby. "I love the way they work their players out. Even during the season, they maintain a focus on individual development. I also like the city and their overall style of play."
Right behind Georgia Tech, Osby lists Memphis, North Carolina, Florida, Connecticut, Mississippi State and Tennessee (offer) as his other top schools.
"Of the schools that haven't offered, Memphis is recruiting me the hardest," he said. "Florida is on me pretty hard and wants me to come to a football game. With North Carolina and Connecticut, I'm just getting letters."
Osby, the No. 31 ranked prospect in the class of 2008, will visit Mississippi State this weekend and plans to take a couple more unofficial visits this fall.
Romero Osby scouting report:
A jack of all trades type of player, Osby has the size and versatility to impact the game both inside and outside. Developing into a point forward type of player, he is very good at penetrating (loves to go left) and then finding open teammates. Needs to improve the consistency of his outside jumper and improve his lateral quickness defending the perimeter.
