Cosby Makes Return; Has A Few Offers

It's been a tough year and a half for Aaron Cosby, but the 6-foot-3, 180-pound shooting guard is finally back on the court playing high school basketball.

Aaron Cosby began his high school career at Louisville (Ky.) Manual, but after an impressive freshman season he opted to transfer to Louisville (Ky.) Jefferstown and due to KHSAA rules, he was forced to sit out for a year and a half.

"It was definitely hard not being able to play and not being able to help my team," Cosby said. "I'm just glad it's over with and I'm playing now."

It didn't take Cosby long to make an impact on the Chargers program. In his first game back, which ironically was against Manual, he scored 25 points and led them to the final of the King of the Bluegrass.

Since then he's had a handful of other big games, including a 26-point effort against Louisville (Ky.) Waggener just before the new year began. For the season Cosby is averaging 16 points a game.

"I'm playing pretty good," the 2010 prospect said. "I'm still shaking this rust off, but I've improved and I'm getting comfortable and I think we are playing well as a team."

Although his high school career was put on hold for a year and a half, his recruitment never stopped. Since coaches couldn't see him during the season, he got a lot of looks during open gyms and during the summer.

"Right now the schools showing the most interest are Minnesota, Oklahoma State, Dayton, Virginia, VCU, Ohio University, Auburn and Indiana," Cosby told

Of the schools in the mix, Minnesota, Oklahoma State, Dayton and Virginia Commonwealth have offered scholarships. And he's taken unofficial visits to Indiana, Minnesota and Dayton.

"I plan on at least waiting until after the season is over," Cosby said when asked about a decision. "I may do it some time in the spring or I may wait until the early signing period, I haven't really decided yet."
