Tulane transfer Osetkowski picks Texas

1 Comment

Tulane transfer Dylan Osetkowski has committed to Texas, according to multiple reports.
The 6-foot-8 forward will have two seasons of eligibility remaining after deciding to leave the Green Wave upon the firing of coach Ed Conroy last month. The Longhorns locked him up following a visit to Austin last weekend, keeping him from making a visit to Sean Miller and Arizona that was schedule for this upcoming weekend.
As a transfer, Osetkowski won’t be able to provide an instant boost inside for coach Shaka Smart, who lost interior players Connor Lammert, Prince Ibeh and Cameron Ridley to graduation this season, but he’ll give the Longhorns a future option inside starting in 2017.
Texas will add top-100 center James Brooks next season, but the Longhorns will need frontcourt reinforcements and Osetkowski will eventually provide that. He averaged 11.3 points and 8.3 rebounds as a sophomore last year for Tulane.
