UB Football receiver KJ Osborn to transfer to Miami

After losing their star quarterback to the NFL Draft, UB Football’s situation just got a little tougher as wide receiver KJ Osborn will grad transfer to Miami for his fifth season of play.

Osborn was one of many UB players this year that showed NFL potential and had a lot of room to be the star receiver next year. He was especially crucial in situations where Anthony Johnson was doubled up by opposing defenses. Once Tyree Jackson declared for the draft, he opened up his recruitment and registered for the transfer portal.

The Ypsilanti, Michigan native finished this past season with 892 yards and 7 touchdowns. His best game in UB’s historic 2018 campaign was a 188-yard, three-touchdown effort in a thrilling 35-28 victory over Eastern Michigan.

The move leaves a lot of room for Charlie Jones and Antonio Nunn to make a huge impact next season. UB is also going to need another receiver to step up as well because of the loss of both Johnson and George Rushing. One would have to guess that Rodney Scott, a highly-touted recruit that redshirted this year, will be ready for that role.

Good luck KJ, Forever a Bull.
