In two seasons at Montana State, Osobor made his way as a backup to four-time All-Big Sky selection, Big Sky Player of the Year and Defensive Player of the Year-winning Jubrile Belo. Despite nominally playing behind one of the most decorated players in Bobcats history, Osobor made an impact, averaging 10.1 points, 4.6 rebounds, 1.0 assists and 0.9 blocks in a mere 19.0 minutes per game. Those efforts led to Osobor being named the Big Sky Sixth Man of the Year.
Osobor is the second Montana State player to transfer to Utah State. He joins point guard Darius Brown who spent one year in Bozeman helping Osobor and company go back-to-back as Big Sky Tournament champions and get to two straight NCAA Tournament games.
