Osimani moved from Montevideo to Hialeah, Florida to attend high school there. An All-state player after nearly averaging a triple double per game for Champagnat Catholic High School, he was ranked in the top 100 high school recruits by ESPN.com.

In one season there, he averaged 8.3 points, 3.8 rebounds, 6.9 assists and 3.5 steals per game in earning All-Conference honors. After one season of JUCO ball, Osimani again committed to play NCAA ball, this time at Duquesne University. He started at point guard for two years for the Dukes, and had two successful seasons for the team, including a 172 assist junior season that put him at second on Duquesne's all-time single season assist chart.
After graduating, Osimani returned home to Uruguay to play for Club Bigua of the Liga Uruguaya de Basketball Along with Leandro García Morales, he helped lead Club Bigua to the 2008 Uruguayan League title. In four years as a professional, he has played for teams in Uruguay, Venezuela, and Puerto Rico. As starting point guard, he helped lead Club Sandwich to the 2008 Uruguayan League title.
