Osborne brothers are two to watch

There is plenty of talent at South Garland (Texas) High School in the class of 2008 with quarterback Nick Florence and safety Joseph Ibiloye receiving offers and interest from schools in and around Texas.
Don't overlook receivers and twin brothers Steven Osborne and Courtney Osborne. Steven, the 6-foot-4, 180-pounder, is already receiving mail from the likes of Oklahoma State, Arkansas, Wisconsin, Texas A&M, Tennessee, Kansas and several other schools. Courtney, a two-way player, is also receiving mail from most of the same schools.
Texas A&M appears to be a school that both are highly interested in.
"We're looking forward to visiting Texas A&M at some point," Steven Osborne said. "They're close to home."
Courtney is a free safety as well as receiver for South Garland. Both players recently went to the Oklahoma State junior day as well. Steven went with Ibiloye went to Texas for their junior day.
"I just talked to the receivers coach at Oklahoma State," Steven said. "He just introduced us to everybody there. We didn't really talk about recruiting."
Tennessee is a school that's also high on both of the brothers' lists. With their father being the army, they've lived many places and are originally from Clarksville in Tennessee.
"We moved around a lot when I was young," Steven said. "I like Tennessee quite a bit."
Courtney says that most schools are recruiting him as an athlete since he's spent time at both free safety and receiver.
"I like playing both sides of the ball," the 6-foot-3, 172-pound Courtney said. "Wisconsin is really coming on strong. I think they could (offer first)."
Neither have any future visit plans at this time for junior days or unofficial trips.
