LOGAN, UT - JANUARY 30 : Great Osobor #1 of the Utah State Aggies celebrates during the final minute of the game against the San Jose State Spartans at the Dee Glen Spectrum on January 30, 2024 in Logan, Utah.

LOGAN, Utah – One day after introducing Jerrod Calhoun as the next Utah State men’s basketball head coach, reports surfaced that Mountain West Player of the Year Great Osobor is expected to enter the NCAA transfer portal while simultaneously seeking feedback on his NBA draft viability.

The 6’8 wing has played one season at Utah State after transferring from Montana State University with previous USU head coach Danny Sprinkle last summer.

About Great Osobor

The Bradford, England native was named Mountain West Player and Newcomer of the Year and earned MW first-team recognition after a banner first year in Logan.

Osobor was the Mountain West’s third-leading scorer, averaging 17.6 points per game while connecting at a 57.2 percent rate (second). Not just an offensive weapon, the 6’8 wing led the league with nine rebounds, forced 1.3 steals (12th), and blocked 1.5 shots (third) per night. He put up eight double-doubles in MW play while reaching double-figure points in all but one league game.

Osobor became the second Aggie and the first since Sam Merrill in 2018-19 to be named Mountain West Player of the Year.
