Continued: Sid Hartman: Steinbach says young Twins require time to grow

You hate to see Morneau go, but there is little doubt if Ryan can get some good prospects, it makes sense to trade Morneau, because he will be a free agent after the season. At that time the Twins will have as good a chance to re-sign him as any other team.

I believe there is less chance they would trade closer Glen Perkins, who is signed to a multiyear contract. There would be no chance of getting him back any time soon.

Jottings

• It was a real tribute to Gophers football when coach Jerry Kill was selected to speak at an annual recent Alabama high school football clinic. The word is that he wowed the coaches. And speaking of Alabama, the Gophers are recruiting there,and this spring had a visitor in New Market, Ala., safety Khari Blaisingame, who is giving the maroon and gold serious consideration.

• Representing the Gophers at this week’s Big Ten football preseason media gathering in Chicago will be Donnell Kirkwood, Ra’Shede Hageman and Brock Vereen.

• Among the 100-plus players invited to the Gophers football Friday night camp at TCF Bank Stadium was one J.R. Reed, son of former Vikings receiver Jake Reed from Prestonwood Christian Academy in Plano, Texas. Jake, who said his son is considering Minnesota, has a friend on the Gophers coaching staff in running backs coach Brian Anderson.

• Gophers coaches had a cookout Sunday for several of the top players they are recruiting. They included Jashon Cornell, a defensive player from Cretin-Derham Hall who ESPN ranks the best player in the country in the class of 2015, and defensive lineman Frank Ragnow of Chanhassen. Also on hand were outstanding players who have committed, including Minneapolis Washburn running back Jeff Jones, defensive lineman Steven Richardson of Mount Carmel High School in Chicago, Owatonna defensive end Andrew Stelter and center Connor Mayes of Van Alstyne, Texas.

• The Minnesota high school basketball “Big Three” of Tyus Jones, Reid Travis and Rashad Vaughn started together in the Nike Global Challenge over the weekend in Washington, D.C., going 3-1 in four games with USA Midwest. Travis averaged 22 points per game, Vaughn 19.8 and Jones 11.5 points and 7.0 assists.
