Great Weekend For Osborne

Great Weekend For Osborne

Southern Miss hosted 15 prospects and commits on campus this weekend. Find out what Evan Osborne had to say about the weekend and the talks about his future with the new coaching staff.

Evan Osborne, Pearl Ath, was already committed to Southern Miss, but the weekend just reaffirmed that he made the right decision.

"Man, we had a fantastic weekend," he said. "We had a bunch of guys off the MS/AL all-star roster, and those not committed we were recruiting them hard to Southern Miss.

"It is an awesome staff, they are ready to work man. Coach Smith said he's going to really build me up and make me into a D1 player. Coach Monken is going to turn things around."

They talked about how he might be used in the future as well.

"They said they see me as an OLB, or maybe the Spur," he said. "Coach Monken said they might even see how things go and could use me on offense possibly."

Osborne was hosted by D.J. Thompson, his former teammate at Pearl.

"We went out to eat at Mugshots on Friday which was awesome," he said. "Then we had this amazing Prime Rib on Saturday night, we were fed really well.

"We also met with the coaches and spent time with the players. We toured all the facilities and just had a great time with our future home and teammates. Man, I am so excited to get down there. It can't come fast enough." Recommended Stories
