Traynor is the son of former Louisville forward Jason Osborne who played for the Cards in the mid nineties and was a high school phenom at Louisville Male earning Kentucky Mr. Basketball honors in 1993. Traynor is coached by former Cardinal James “Boo” Brewer at Bardstown High School.
The Louisville legacy chose the Cards over Cincinnati. He also held offers from Xavier, Western Kentucky, Murray State, Evansville, Akron, Ball State, and Northern Kentucky.
After a sensational spring/summer showing on the AAU circuit with the Louisville Legends, Traynor went from a mid-major recruit to generating interest from some of the top programs in the country.
Traynor is ranked as the 14th best power-forward and 79th best player in the country, per 247Sports composite rankings.<
