What will Dylan Osetkowski do with his hair next?

Posted February 8th, 2018


Dylan Osetkowski is making waves for more than his basketball skills. The junior Texas forward currently averages 14 points a game, but his hair also has people talking.

Since his debut at Texas in 2016, his mane has had quite the journey. Here he was at his first game at Texas in 2016, sporting a buzzcut and no facial hair.

A year later, Osetkowski grew a beard and his hair out.

In 2018, Osetkowski changed up his hair and sported twists during the game against Ole Miss in January.

In February, he traded in the twists for cornrows when the team played Oklahoma. The style even inspired a few popular tweets.

ESPN’s Maria Taylor met with Osetkowski before the Oklahoma matchup to talk his hair game. He told her he hasn’t cut his hair in about a year. Judging from the length now, the sky’s the limit for what he’ll do with his hair next.
