Miami landed a major piece for its 2019 offense tonight with the addition of Buffalo grad transfer wide receiver K.J. Osborn.
Osborn led the Bulls in all three major receiving categories this season. He hauled in 53 receptions for 892 yards and seven touchdowns.
“After deep prayer and consideration with my family, I have decided to grad-transfer to The University of Miami,” Osborn wrote on Twitter.
Osborn is the second major grad transfer Miami has landed in the last 24 hours. Former USC safety Bubba Bolden announced his decision to transfer to Coral Gables last night.
Both players will be eligible immediately.

Osborn’s arrival fills a major void for the Hurricanes. With the losses of Jeff Thomas and Lawrence Cager to transfer and Ahmmon Richards to a career-ending injury, there is plenty of playing time available on the perimeter.
This will be Osborn’s second time playing football for a program in Florida. He played his senior season of high school ball at IMG Academy in 2014.
