Osborne is one of Tennessee’s top interior defensive line targets in the class of 2023, ranking as the nation’s No. 127 player and the state of Alabama’s No. 12 prospect according to the 247sports composite rankings.
The 6-foot-3, 250-pound prospect ranks as the 17th best interior defensive lineman in the country as the Vols battle a trio of top programs on the recruiting trail.

Osborne took two visits to Tennessee in recent months, coming to Knoxville for the “RockyTopPalooza” weekend in late May before returning to town for a late June official visit.
The Trussville, Alabama native also took official visits to Auburn, Clemson and Texas in June. The home state Tigers didn’t make the talented four-star defensive lineman’s top group while the home state Crimson Tide have entered the picture.
Osborne camped at Alabama in early June and the Crimson Tide have seemingly made a recent push. 247sports’ director of football recruiting Steve Wiltfong put a crystal ball prediction for Osborne in to Alabama last week.
Tennessee’s seventh ranked recruiting class has three edge rushers committed including two of the nation’s best in Caleb Herring and Chandavion Bradley. However, Georgia defensive lineman Tyree Weathersby is Tennessee’s only interior defensive lineman commit.
