Aubrey Minix of Oregon-Davis, Indiana has verballed Murray State. The 5-9 shooting guard 18.1 ppg for the 24-1 Bobcats. From the South Bend Tribune.
Minix is the 27th player overall in the 2009 Indiana class to verbal and the 26th headed to a D1 program.

Two Ohio players have verballed.
Chelsea Hawkins of Bucyrus is headed to the University of Evansville.
Sarah Pearce of Middletown Fenwick has verballed Lehigh University.
The two push the overall Ohio 2009 verbals to 36 and those heading to a D1 program 27.
