Osborne appeared in ten games in his junior season of 2018 but did not start. He blocked a punt and returned it for a touchdown in the win over ETSU and intercepted two passes in the Vols win over no. 11 Kentucky.

The North Carolina native came to Tennessee as a four-star recruit and the 17th ranked cornerback in the class of 2016, according to the 247Sports composite rankings. He played in 30 games in his three-year Vol career, recording 30 tackles, two tackles for loss, a sack and two interceptions.

Osborne is the second Vol to announce plans to transfer this offseason, joining quarterback Will McBride.
