One of Oklahoma’s biggest risers in the 2024 class is looking forward to putting on a show in his hometown next month.
Broken Arrow 2024 TE Derrick Osmond seemingly checks all the boxes for what a big time college tight end prospect is supposed to look like. He has elite size at 6’6, 230-pounds, big time athleticism and the ability to impact a game as both a blocker and downfield playmaker.
He has seen his stock soar in recent weeks, picking up Division I offers from Kansas, Bowling Green, Miami (OH), Eastern Michigan and Tulsa and is drawing interest from numerous other programs as well.
Six Star Football recently caught up with Osmond and asked him about the offseason and the recruiting process.
