Bombale Osby Close to Decision

The Benedictine (Va.) warrior is set to take his final official visit this weekend. Then it'll be decision-time upon his return to Virginia.

Three down, one to go for Bombale Osby.

The 6-6 (despite his claims he's 6-8 and grown lately) power forward has already taken official visits to New Mexico, Boston University and Howard – and he'll head to Georgia State this weekend.

However, unless Georgia State really wins him over, Osby already has a pretty good idea where he'll end up.

``New Mexico," he said. ``The way they do things is just so different than everyone else. There was no pressure and no rush. I'm the guy they've been waiting on. They're really only recruiting me and haven't signed anyone else."

Osby said that he realized everyone has him pegged as an undersized four-man who can't do much else other than rebound.

``I'm trying to expand my game and develop my jump shot," he said. "I can get to the hole and the foul line. People still don't believe I can shoot, but they'll see."

As far as a timetable for the decision, this one is likely to come early next week.

``I want to get it over with so I can focus back on school," he added. "The phone calls are getting a little out of control."
