The latest to garner an offer from Tom Crean and company: 6-3 guard Aaron Cosby from Jeffersontown High School in Louisville, according to Jody Demling of The Courier-Journal:

Jeffersontown junior guard Aaron Cosby told The Courier-Journal that Crean watched him in open gym on Thursday and offered him a scholarship this afternoon.

“He told me he was very impressed,” Cosby said. “This was the first time he had seen me play. I am going to think long and hard about it this week.”

Cosby noted the Hoosiers will only have two scholarships available in the Class of 2010. He’s making a visit to Miami of Ohio this weekend and was already scheduled for an unofficial visit to Bloomington next weekend.

Cosby sat out most of last season after transferring from Manual to Jeffersontown. He committed to Travis Ford and Massachusetts before his sophomore year, but re-opened his recruitment after Ford bolted for Stillwater. He currently doesn’t figure into’s rankings for 2010, but I would expect him to end up as a four-star player in that class. Here’s a list of schools involved with Cosby: Minnesota, Miami (OH), Purdue, Dayton, Ohio, Western Kentucky, Vanderbilt, Louisville, Auburn, Virginia and Oklahoma State.
