Simply put, Osborn just gets it. From holding the door open for tens of people at a time to being the most vocal camper on the floor at almost all times, the point guard leads by example. She’s really improved her outside shot and made defenses pay time and time again. Taking the next step will include finding opportune mismatches for her team on the fly and exploiting those by getting teammates in the right place.

Osborn’s competitive yet always upbeat nature is ideal in these type of environments. She is an energy provider in seemingly every aspect with a game that keeps improving at the point guard position. Osborn is continuing to put in work on her outside shot. Being a 35 plus percent 3-point shooter is a key for smaller point guards like Osborn who need to keep opposing defenses honest to create driving lanes for paint touches.

Osborn has been in the gym with us on multiple occasions training. Her growth is evident with each time we get back together again. She’s a leader, a worker and a joy to be around. Osborn is one of those special players who can make every workout a little easier for everyone involved with her energy. On the floor, she has taken the next step with her jumper consistently showing range beyond the 3-point line coupled with a willingness to get her teammates involved early and often here.

Osborn was one of the most vocal players in the camp. She directed players both inside of drills and during the mechanics of the camp. Her maturity and headiness is a delight to be around in this setting. Osborn will get most of her mileage as a prospect as a passer. She loves to pass and she generally does a good job of setting her teammates up with on-point passes. She is equally effective at stretching the defense with her perimter jump shot. She does have room to improve on her ability to get her shot off more quickly with less wasted motion. — Coach Hemi

Osborn is a talented option at the point guard position. She reminds me of Jessica Goswitz (former Rice Univ. at the same stage). Osborn is a solid shooter, ball handler who was looking to get her teammates involved here. Her energy and vocality was infectious in this setting.
