Osborne initially declared for the 2023 WNBA draft, where she was considered a potential first- or second-round pick, but she has since withdrawn her name from consideration.
"Pauley, I'll see you again soon," she posted in her announcement video.

The 5-foot-9 guard and four-year starter averaged 15.2 points, 5.7 rebounds and 2.9 assists across her four years at UCLA.
The three-time all-Pac-12 standout helped the Bruins (27-10) make it to the Sweet 16 of the NCAA tournament, the furthest they had advanced in the event since Osborne got to campus. UCLA was beaten by No. 1 overall seed South Carolina.
Earlier in March, No. 5 seed UCLA upset No. 1 seed Stanford in the Pac-12 tournament and appeared in the championship game, where it fell to No. 7 seed Washington State.
Osborne returning ensures UCLA will have one of the most dynamic backcourts in the country, as she'll link up with freshman point guard Kiki Rice.
