“I am humbled and honored to announce my verbal commitment to continue my academic and athletic career at the University of Southern California! Couldn’t have made it to this point if it wasn’t for my parents, my brother, as well as all my coaches and teammates. A huge thank you to all, including the entire USC coaching staff who have given me this amazing opportunity! I’m thrilled to become a TROJAN!! FIGHT ON”

Osio trains year-round with Lakeside Aquatic Club and most recently placed 13th in the 100 fly at Juniors West earlier this month. He placed sixth in the 100 fly this past summer at College Station Sectionals.
