WR, 6-4, 185, Garland, Texas (South Garland HS)
Wide receiver Steven Osborne joins his twin brother Courtney in the Huskers' 2008 signing class. Steven and Courtney are just the second set of twins ever to sign with the Huskers, joining Josh and Daniel Bullocks who signed with the Huskers in 2001 and who both are currently in the NFL. The Osbornes are two of nine Texas natives in the 2008 class, marking the most players signed from the state in one season by Nebraska. Steven Osborne provided a big receiving target for South Garland High and Coach Mickey Moss, helping the school to a district title and a 10-2 record. As a senior, he caught 38 passes for 601 yards and 10 touchdowns. His play did not go unnoticed as the Dallas Morning News ranked him as the No. 49 prospect on its Area 100 list. In addition to Nebraska, Steven also visited UNLV, and received scholarship offers from Utah, Kansas and SMU among others. Steven was born on Jan. 15, 1990, and is the son of Sandra Osborne.
