High school and college career
As a freshman at Louisville playing with Derrick Caracter, Earl Clark and Jerry Smith, the young group struggled early in the 2006–07 season. The team went on to win 8 out of its last 10 games, earning a bid to the NCAA Tournament. In the second round of the NCAA Tournament against Texas A&M, Sosa scored 31 points, shooting 15 for 17 from the line and 7 for 9 from the field. He also shot 15 for 15 on free throws to start the game, but missed his final two, as Texas A&M won the game.
In his four-year career at Louisville, Sosa played 140 games and averaged 9.7 points per game.
On July 3, 2011, Sosa signed a one-year deal with Sutor Basket Montegranaro. However, after breaking his leg playing for the Dominican Republic at the 2011 FIBA Americas Championship in September, he was ruled out for six months. Sosa was subsequently replaced on Montegranaro's roster by Ben Uzoh.
In January 2013, Sosa joined Blancos de Rueda Valladolid on a one-month contract. He later played in Puerto Rico for Cangrejeros de Santurce and in his home country for Leones de Santo Domingo.
On September 25, 2015, Sosa signed with the Atlanta Hawks. He was waived by the Hawks on October 10, 2015 after appearing in one preseason game. Later that month, he signed with Iranian team Petrochimi Bandar Imam. On April 16, 2016, a day after winning the Iranian Super League title with Petrochimi, Sosa signed with Israeli team Hapoel Jerusalem for the rest of the season.
On August 11, 2016, Sosa signed with Italian team Juvecaserta Basket for the 2016–17 season. On March 15, 2017, he parted ways with Juvecaserta after averaging 19.4 points, 2.8 rebounds and 5.9 assists per game in the Serie A. Three days later, he signed with Sporting Al Riyadi Beirut of the Lebanese Basketball League.
