It’s officially the “offseason” at South Dakota State. But the tidbits trudge on:
Nate Wolters had his second private workout Monday, visiting the Denver Nuggets. He was among 12 prospects – Yankton grad Colton Iverson was, too – and described the experience as “fun.”
Agent Jared Karnes said that Wolters is now 100 percent after a goofy hip flexor strain that cropped up during the NBA Draft Combine, and has several more visits scheduled. Up next: Cleveland and Phoenix later this week.
The two-round draft is June 27.
Monday was a pretty busy day in Brookings as football, basketball, soccer, volleyball and pretty much any other kind of player (other than baseball) reported to campus to start summer workouts and/or summer classes.
Why not baseball? Because they had end-of-season meetings Monday, and a good chunk of them will leave shortly for summer leagues scattered across the country.
A semi-weird baseball note: South Dakota touches six states on the map. None of those sent a team to the 2013 NCAA Division I tourney. Of course, there aren’t many D-I programs in those states: North Dakota, North Dakota State, Minnesota, Iowa, Nebraska, Creighton and Omaha (which isn’t eligible yet).
In other baseball news, coach Dave Schrage said that Houston and Texas San Antonio will be two of the Jacks’ non-conference opponents next season. SDSU and UTSA wound up sharing a charter jet home from the regional.
