NBA projection
Osby has been projected in the second round to undrafted category. He'll have to prove in workouts that he's capable of playing the three spot at the next level. Osby already has a face-up game and has proven he can shoot with range. Now he'll have to convince NBA teams he can handle the ball and guard elite three men.

2012-13 season
Osby, a first-team All-Big 12 pick, led the Sooners in a number of statistics in his final season, including scoring, rebounding, field-goal percentage, and blocked shots. He was also chosen Oklahoma's MVP after leading the Sooners to the second round of the NCAA tournament.

Key statistics
16.0 ppg | 7.0 rpg | 1.2 apg | 1.3 tpg| 28.7 mpg | .526 FG | .529 3PT | .795 FT

Cool statistic
Osby made 36 consecutive free throws in December and January, missing the school record by one.

What Insiders Say
Oklahoma coach Lon Kruger
"What Ro has done in terms of points and rebounds is pretty obvious. In terms of setting that bar for leadership off the court, on the court, classroom, community, young players that are fresh into the program will benefit greatly from watching how Ro carried himself and how he represented us."

What Outsiders Say
Texas coach Rick Barnes
"We really believe that Osby is one of best players in the league. This is a guy that can score in a lot of different way. We just love the way he plays. He just plays within himself."
