University at Buffalo wide receiver KJ Osborn is transferring to the University of Miami, he announced on Twitter Thursday night.

Osborn, who recently graduated from UB, entered the NCAA transfer portal two weeks ago.

“I would like to thank Coach Leipold, Coach Ianello, the remaining football and academic staff, along with my teammates, for making these last four years at the University at Buffalo a great experience,” Obsorn wrote on Twitter.  “Thank you for giving me an opportunity not only to play college football, but to create lifelong relationships and earn my college degree.”

Osborn also added he’s “extremely excited and thankful” to be joining Manny Diaz, who was recently named head coach of the Hurricanes after Mark Richt stepped down. Prior, Diaz was named head coach at Temple on Dec. 13 before walking away and returning to “The U” following Richt’s departure Dec. 30.

The wide receiver enjoyed his most prolific season with the Bulls this past year and finished with 892 yards and seven touchdowns. UB ended the season with a 10-4 overall record with appearances in the MAC Championship and Dollar General Bowl.

Osborn is the latest player to leave the program. Fellow wide receiver Anthony Johnson graduated and will be selected in April’s NFL Draft.  The duo combined for 110 receptions, 1,903 yards and 18 touchdowns.

Quarterback Tyree Jackson, who also graduated, entered the NCAA transfer portal but ultimately decided to declare for the draft.
