Wisconsin Football Offers Highly-Touted 2026 RB Javian Osborne
Osborne has already tallied 17 total offers, with schools such as Georgia, Texas, Oregon, Washington, USC, Oklahoma, Tennessee, Texas A&M, Baylor, and Oklahoma State, among several others extending a scholarship to the Texas native.
Osborne was a varsity starter as a freshman for Forney High School, totaling 1,064 yards and eight touchdowns en route to earning Offensive Newcomer of the Year honors and being named First-Team All-District. He took a huge step up in his sophomore campaign, posting a whopping 2,231 yards and 41 touchdowns on 290 carries for an average of 7.7 yards per rush. Osborne would earn First-Team All-District honors for the second time after his breakout year.
The Forney native is the fifth running back the Badgers have offered in the 2026 cycle, joining Sy’eer Coleman, Kyshawn Robinson, Darren Williams, and DeZephen Walker.
Osborne has already made a visit to Oklahoma and two trips down to Austin, Texas for unofficial visits with the Longhorns.
The Wisconsin football program has yet to pick up a commitment in the 2026 recruiting cycle.
